    The incumbent's mission is to serve and protect Veterans, patients, employees, contractors, volunteers, affiliates, visitors, and others who frequent VA facilities. Their safety and security is paramount to ensuring that the VA can successfully fulfill President Lincoln's promise "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his orphan" by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans. Veterans should be able to enter an y VA facility across the country with the confidence that they will receive a consistently high level of protection and customer service in accordance with VA directives. This is accomplished through crime prevention activities, typical law enforcement actions, emergency response capabilities, special training and tactics, and weapons, equipment and systems utilization, and Veteran Centered Policing. Veteran Centered Policing is a VA-specific model by which the VA police force serves and protects Veterans, employees, and all others who access VA care and services. This model of policing goes beyond law enforcement and focuses on ensuring that VA police demonstrate the ideals of the Department's core values reflected in the acronym I CARE (integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect, and excellence) when interacting with Veterans and those that also serve Veterans. Successful application of Veteran Centered Policing requires VA police use good independent judgement in assessing situations and determining appropriate responses. VA police must work in partnership with other VA employees to first and foremost carry out the VA mission of serving Veterans. Traditional policing activities should be limited to situations in which the safety and security of the Veteran or others takes precedence over delivering an excelling customer experience.
