§ 33.04  CODE OF ETHICS.
   The law enforcement officer’s code of ethics shall be as follows:
   (A)   As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the constitutional rights of all people.
   (B)   I will keep my private life untarnished as an example to all; maintain calm in the face of ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. I will obey the laws of the land and the regulations of my Department.
   (C)   I will never permit personal feelings, prejudice or friendships to influence my decisions. I will enforce the law without malice, never accepting gratuities.
   (D)   I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust, to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of police service. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to my chosen profession of law enforcement.
