The Mission of the Grantsville City Police Department is to work in partnership with the community to enhance the quality of life in our city. Our dedicated Team is committed to providing a quality police service by constantly striving to be firm, fair, consistent, and professional. We are proud to serve our community with integrity, and assist citizens in identifying and solving problems. We commit to upholding the highest professional standards when enforcing the laws. We commit to the ideals of the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics, and vow to serve mankind, safeguard lives and property, protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder, and to respect the Constitutional rights of all to liberty, equality and justice. The Constitution memorializes the freedom our forefathers fought to establish. Our oaths to uphold and defend it are affirmations of our pledge to honor the badge of our office. We recognize the badge as a symbol of the sacred trust placed in us by the people we serve as we stay true to the ethics of police service. We strive to maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence. We remain vigilant in the defense of our community and stand ready to respond and provide professional service.
We give preference for law enforcement experience and/or POST certified applicants. The Grantsville City Police Department does, however, occasionally sponsor a candidate through the Police Academy. We encourage all those who wish to pursue a career in law enforcement to obtain a Utah POST LEO certification. Department sponsorship is not required to enter a Satellite Academy. Tooele Tech and the Salt Lake Community College are among local institutions that offer an affordable POST certification program. Use the following link for more information on the POST program at Tooele Tech. Tooele Tech
Law enforcement is an essential, demanding, and yet rewarding profession that offers a steady income and great benefits. Agencies across the State are struggling to fill vacancies in their Departments. On the bright side, the shortage of qualified applicants is driving wages up for the profession. You may retire with a pension after 25 years. You must be 21 to be a patrol officer but may begin your career as early as age 19 as a Jail Deputy. Law enforcement as a career offers the satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of others as we serve our communities, safeguard lives and property, protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence or disorder.
