Ethics & Preassignment
This following code was created by the Task Force on Private Security and was sponsored by the National Advisory Committee on Criminal Justice and Standards and Goals, 1976. This code serves as an industry accepted benchmark for quality of service. The code of ethics provides guidance to Integral Officers in dealing with situations not specifically covered in written instructions.
“In my capacity as a security officer hired to prevent, report and deter crime, I pledge:
- To protect life and property: prevent and reduce crime committed against my employer/client’s business or other organizations and institutions to which I am assigned; abide by the Constitution of the United States.
- To carry out my duties with honesty and integrity and to maintain the highest moral principles.
- To faithfully, diligently and dependably discharge my duties, and to uphold the laws, policies and procedures that protect the rights of others.
- To discharge my duties truthfully, accurately and prudently without interference of personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my judgments.
- To report any violations of law or rule or regulation immediately to my supervisors.
- To respect and protect information considered confidential and privileged by my employer or client, except where their interests are contrary top law or this Code of Ethics.
- To cooperate with all recognized and responsible law enforcement agencies within their jurisdiction,
- To accept no compensation, commission, gratuity, or other advantage without the knowledge and consent of my employer.
- To conduct myself professionally at all times, and to perform my duties in a manner that reflects credit upon myself, my employer and the security profession.
