AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; protect the innocent against deception, 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 ex-ample to all. I WILL maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule.  I WILL develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others.  I WILL be 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 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 my personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions.  With no compromise for crime and with relentless persecution of criminals, I WILL enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear of 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.
