We revere the truth: We accept nothing less than truth, honesty, and integrity in our profession.

We enforce the law: We recognize that our basic responsibility is to enforce the law. Our role is to resolve problems through the law, not to judge or punish.

We seek community partnership: We view the people of our school district as partners who deserve our concern, care, and attention. We are committed to reducing the fear of crime in our schools and community. We endeavor to do this by creating partnerships in our schools and neighborhoods.

We honor our police powers: We understand that our police powers are derived from the people we serve. We do not tolerate the abuse of our police authority.

We conduct ourselves with dignity: We recognize that our personal conduct, both on and off duty, is inseparable from the professional reputation of the officer, the police department, and the school district.
