  3. Absolute honesty and integrity in dealing with others, both inside and outside the police department.
  4. Absolute honesty in report writing and testifying in court. Nothing is worth compromising my personal integrity.
  5. We take every opportunity possible for training and police skills development.
  6. We recognize our fundamental duty, as a police officer is to protect the rights of citizens according to the United States Constitution.
  7. We conform to the Law Enforcement Officer Code of Ethics.
  8. We recognize our fundamental duty is to serve and protect other people.
