Law Enforcement Code of Ethics
As a Law Enforcement Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard life and property; to protect the innocent against deception; and the weak 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 in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of this department. Whatever I see and hear of a confidential nature or which is confided in me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.
