The sergeant, new recruits, ladies, and gentlemen, I welcome everyone to this important day. I am going to address the protections that provided to citizens against aggressive police behavior.
The misconduct and corruption cases by police disrespects the human stipulated by the constitution. The law protects the citizens from all forms of bribery, civil violations and extortion. The law is against police misconduct and allows citizens to sue the police for any violations of their rights. The police forces are accountable to any form of brutality they induce to citizens. Section 18 U.S.C. § 241 ) protects the citizens from their constitutional rights; therefore, it is suicidal to disrespect the United States constitution. 42 U.S.C.A. 14141  is a statute commonly known as the police misconduct provision that makes it illegitimate for the police to involve themselves in any form of, misconduct that denies people of their rights.
The establishment of the civilian review boards has helped in investigating claims on police misconduct. Many towns have put in place civilians oversight boards that critically scrutinize complain on police misconduct by the citizens. The review boards play a significant role by rating the performance of the police, as well as maintain all regulations that govern the police practices. This is helpful as it guarantees protection of citizens from the aggressive police behavior.
The official ethics statement of the police department is:
“I will always uphold the constitution, my community and the agency I serve. My fundamental duty is to serve the community; to safeguard lives and property and to protect the innocent against deception, and to respect the constitutional rights of all to justice, equality and liberty.” (Carl B., et al. 2000)
In my opinion, the ethics statement is perfect. It accomplishes the goals and objectives of the police department and protects the civilians. The statement covers the important parts composed in an ethics policy.in Conclusion, my preference is to respect and uphold the statement as presented since it is against all forms of ethical malpractices.
