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 and disorder; and to respect the constitutional rights of all persons to liberty, equality, and justice.

     I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courage 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 in both my personal and offical life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. What I see or hear of a confidental nature or that which is confided in me in my offical capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performace of my duty.

     I will never act officiously or permit personal feeling, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my decision. With no compromise for criminals and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law 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 police service. I will constantly strive to achieve those objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to my chosen profession, law enforcement.
