ERIE PD OATH:
We solemnly vow to the people of Illinois, upon our honor as officers and citizens, to discharge the duties of an officer of the Erie Police to the best of our ability, to adhere to the rules and regulations of the Erie Police, and to adopt the Agency’s mission and goals into your everyday life?
We pledge to be honest in thought, word, and deed; to maintain unimpeachable integrity; to be just, fair, and impartial; to be steadfast against evil; and to give our utmost to protect the rights, property, and lives of our citizens?
We strive to be thoughtful, and intelligent, to make our conduct friendly but impartial, courteous but firm, and charitable to the inadvertent violator? We will never compromise with crime and at all times, uphold the Constitutions and laws of our country and the state of Illinois.
CODE OF ETHICS
As Village of Erie Police Officers, our fundamental duty is to serve humankind; 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 to liberty, equality, and justice.
We will keep our private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; maintain self-restraint, and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought, word, and deed in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept undisclosed unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty. I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my decisions.
With no compromise for crime and with a relentless pursuit of criminals, We will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence, and never accepting gratuities. We recognize the badge of this office as a symbol of public faith, and we accept it as a public trust to be held so long as we are true to the ethics of the police service. We will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to my chosen profession…law enforcement.
