CODE OF ETHICS FOR PRIVATE SECURITY EMPLOYEES
Large or small, even the best-managed companies can be sued. Business executives never intend to put themselves at risk but they often are not aware or fully understand the implications of their actions. Consider the following as a code of ethics example for your employees:
- To accept the responsibilities and obligations of my role as a licensed security officer. To endeavor to shield persons or property from those who would cause harm and to do so with attentive observation and reporting to law enforcement while on duty.
- To conduct myself with honesty and integrity and to adhere to the highest moral principles in the performance of my duties as a licensed security officer.
- To be faithful, diligent and dependable in discharging my duties and to uphold at all times the laws, policies and procedures that protect the rights of others.
- To observe the precepts of truth, accuracy, and prudence, without allowing personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my judgment.
- To report to my superiors, without hesitation, any violation of the law or of my employer's or client's regulations.
- To respect and endeavor to protect the confidential and privileged information of my employer or client beyond the term of my employment.
- To cooperate with all recognized and responsible law enforcement and government agencies in matters within their jurisdiction.
- To accept no compensation, commission, gratuity, or other advantage without the knowledge and consent of my employer.
- To conduct myself professionally and to perform my duties in a manner that reflects credit.
