Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 18.07.2014 (Article Archived on 29.08.2014)

A new Code of Ethics for the Police is launched today, following extensive development and consultation.

POLICE CODE OF ETHICS LAUNCHED

A new Code of Ethics for the Police is launched today, following extensive development and consultation. The Code - based on the UK Code of Ethics for Policing - outlines the standards of professional behaviour that the Police Service is committed to delivering in serving the community on St Helena and Ascension Island. The Code of Ethics is now available from the Police Station and on the SHG website at: http://www.sainthelena.gov.sh/police-directorate/.

The code sets out the standards of professional behaviour and values that are required of police officers and staff. These standards are summarised below, with more detail to be found in the full Code of Ethics document. Staff are expected to deliver:

• Honesty and Integrity
• Respect and Courtesy
• Equality and Diversity
• Confidentiality
• Good Conduct
• Challenging and Reporting Improper Behaviour
• Fitness for Work
• Orders, Instructions, Duties and Responsibilities

Chief of Police, Trevor Botting, explained:

‘Our community deserves a service from the Police that engenders trust and confidence, is open and transparent and puts Public Service at the core of what we do. The new Code of Ethics and the values associated with it sets the bar high, but I am confident that the officers and staff working in the Police Directorate will meet and exceed that standard in our work.’
