    The article "the"

    I am writing a mission statement for the local county jail, and I am having some conflict over the use of the article "the".
    I would appreciate any input. The following is the way it currently reads:

    "The mission of the West Valley Detention Center is......"

    I was told to remove the article "the". I feel this is not correct,

    Re: The article "the"

    I prefer it as it is, but the second 'the' could go if that's the way they want it.
