    Many agencies use mottos such as "To serve & protect." Just wondering what your individual department mottos are. The one that I prefer is from my old department in NJ: "Service above self."
    Someone pinched that from Rotary International

    My department's is "Leading the Way to a Safer Community"

    They didn't appreciate my suggestion of substituting "Leading" with "Loading"

      "Maintiens le droit", French for "Maintain the right", or "Maintain the law" or "Uphold the law".

        How about:

        "Really, you think we care"

        "Not sparing the rod"

        "You think you've been a victim, wait till court"

        "It's just your imagation"

        "Bad cop, no donut"

        "Emergency, call (#$#-*%&-&#^%) ask for operator #917, pucnch in your home phone number, wait for dail tone, enter the last four digits of your social security number, please wait, a live operator will be with you in a moment"

                  When I first started, someone coined an unofficial motto for a large Bay Area PD as being "In Graft We Flourish." Our brass encouraged us to keep away from any calls the locals were on for fear we would unknowingly walk into a burglary in progress the PD was committing.

                    The RCMP motto is, "Maintiens le Droit", and can be translated as Maintain (or Uphold) the Right (Law). It is french, since we are an officially bi-lingual country.

                    The motto is part of the heraldry of our badge:
                    - top: Crown, of the style preferred by Queen Elizabeth II;
                    - below crown: a banner, with "Canada";
                    - below that banner: a oval, with "Maintiens...", which originally was a buckled belt, then simplified;
                    - within the oval: head of a bison / buffalo, recognizing the main animal of the Canadian prairies, as it was the staple of Aboriginal / Indigenous / First Nations people for meat, fur, tools (from bones);
                    - surrounding the oval: 12 maple leaves, 6 per side, representing the 10 Provinces and the original 2 Territories (Yukon and North West Territory);
                    - below the oval: a 2-fold / 3-part banner, with "Royal Canadian Mounted Police"

                    We now have a 3rd Territory, Nunavut, but the badge has NOT yet been amended, as we are waiting for when QE II passes the reign to Prince Charles, after which he MAY choose a different style of crown, and if so, then new crown and a 13th maple leaf, or just the leaf, will be added.

                      Why isn't the motto in French and English?

                      As an aside, and as an outsider, I think that's unlikely. Much more likely they'll skip Charles and go directly to William.

                        Motto in french rather than both: because they did not add, "Gendarmerie Royale de Canada", as a second bottom banner to the badge, NOR even used that, nor GRC, until the early 1970s.
                        QE II to whomever: I am not a monarchist, but I am ok either way.

                      My lot has a motto so dull that after almost 20 years I genuinely couldn't recall it. I then looked it up and have forgotten it as I type. So I'll pretend it is "I f****** love the Police and the Police loves f******* me"
                      I'm a little bit waayy, a little bit wooah, a little bit woosh, I'm a geezer.

                        My former department's motto was "Community Committed", selected back in the day when community-oriented policing was a big thing. One senior officer received eight hours of administrative leave for suggesting the motto.

                        That really worked out great because the same week he lost eight hours of annual leave for banging up a cruiser.

                        Life is really a big circle.

                            I worked a two-man unit in a gang-infested portion of a large west-coast city in the early '90s, and I had a beat partner that used to say "We don't catch the smart ones...", meaning that the ones that we caught were stupid. I always wondered how that would look as a motto painted on the sides of our marked patrol units, as they transport prisoners to jail.
