About the Service  Police Officer's Code of Ethics

As a police officer, I recognize that my primary obligation is to serve the public effectively and efficiently by protecting lives and property, preventing and detecting offences and preserving peace and order.

I will faithfully administer the law in a just, impartial and reasonable manner, preserving the equality, rights and privileges of citizens as afforded by law.

I accept that all persons, rich or poor, old or young, learned or illiterate, are equally entitled to courtesy, understanding and compassion. I will not be disparaging of any race, creed or class of people. In the performance of my duties, I acknowledge the limits of my authority and promise not to use it for my personal advantage.

I vow never to accept gratuities or favours or compromise myself or the Service in any way.

I will conduct my public and private life as an example of stability, fidelity and morality and without equivocation, adhere to the same standards of conduct which I am bound by duty to enforce. I will exercise self-discipline at all times. I will act with propriety toward my associates in law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

With self-confidence, decisiveness and courage, I will accept all the challenges, hardships, and vicissitudes of my profession. In relationships with my colleagues, I will endeavour to develop an "esprit de corps."

I will preserve the dignity of all persons and subordinate my own self-interests for the common good. I will honour the obligations of my office and strive to attain excellence in the performance of my duties.
