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 traditional law enforcement and focuses on ensuring that VA police demonstrate the ideals of the Department's core values reflected in the acronym ICARE (integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect and excellence) when interacting with Veterans and those that serve Veterans. Successful application of Veteran Centered Policing requires VA police use good independent judgment 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 law enforcement/policing activities should be limited to situations in which the safety and security of the Veteran or others takes precedence over delivering an excellent customer service experience.
