Code of Ethics
As a Peace Officer of the Prince Albert Police Service, 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 rights of all persons to life, liberty and security.
I will keep my private life beyond reproach 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 all laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided in 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 the relentless prosecution of all 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 the Police service. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to my chosen profession - Law Enforcement.
