Code of Ethics

 

Law Enforcement Code of Ethics

 As a Law Enforcement Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to 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 men to liberty, equality and justice.

 

 I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others.  Honest in thought and deed both in my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department.

 

Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.

 

I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions.  With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals,

I will enforce the laws courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or

violence and never accepting gratuities. 

 

I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith,

and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the 

ethics of the police service.

 

I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals,

dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession...

law enforcement.
