Has the Association E-Board forgotten the Oath they took?

Has the Association Executive Board forgotten the Oath they took?  Are they looking out for your best interest or have they turned into a yEs-Board for admin?  A yEs-Board meaning that they have forgotten we are a union that fights, defends and looks after the members best interest.

Let’s break down parts of the Oath.

1.)  I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my decisions.  Are there decisions being influenced?  Are they using the association as a spring board for promotions selling out the members?

2.)  Honest in thought 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.   Has the yEs-Board broken any civil or criminal laws? I will release that info. in a future article.

3.)   I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals.  Are they?  Do they negotiate to your best interest? I will let you be the judge of that.

As for me my friends, I pledge to fight for you, to defend you, to empower you, and to build a powerful union! 

 


 
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 men to liberty, equality and justice.

I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought 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 ever secret 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 relentless prosecution of criminals, I 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.

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 the police service. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession…law enforcement.
