About the Race
Gardner Police Department’s mission is to protect and serve all persons with courtesy, respect, and fairness and to hold ourselves accountable for providing the highest quality of police service in the performance of our duties. We recognize that we are first and foremost a service organization and we are committed to serve with honor and integrity.
Over the past year, our department has made significant progress in our efforts to better police the city and engage our residents. We have changed our deployment model to put more officers on the street during peak call-for-service times and created a bike squad to provide a police presence in areas like Gardner’s trails and greenway that are not easily accessible by vehicle. We’ve also added a police K9 team that will greatly enhance our narcotics detection and enforcement capabilities.
Gardner Police Department is excited to partner with Back the Blue 5K to host a 5K walk/fun, 10K race and one-mile fun run on August 18, 2018. We are raising money for the Gardner Police Department canine training fund as well as the National Canine Association for their training efforts. This is a new and important part of the Police Department and with the training we will be able to serve you to the best of ability. Thank you!
