Doing the right thing in the right way
Every person working for the police service must work honestly and ethically. The public expect the police to do the right thing in the right way.
Basing decisions and actions on a set of policing principles will help to achieve this.
The principles set out in the College of Policing's Code of Ethics originate from the ‘Principles of Public Life’ published by the Committee on Standards in Public Life in 1995, as these continue to reflect public expectations. The Code includes the
principles of ‘fairness’ and ‘respect’ as research has shown these to be crucial to maintaining and enhancing public confidence in policing.
The policing principles reflect the personal beliefs and aspirations that in turn serve to guide behaviour and shape the policing culture.
The combination of principles and standards of behaviour encourages consistency between what people believe in and aspire to, and what

You are truthful and trustworthy
You always do the right thing
You lead by good example
You may choices on evidence and your best professional judgement
You are open and transparent in your actions and decisions
You treat everyone with respect
