IMPORTANCE OF ETHICS
ESSENTIAL ATTRIBUTES OF HUMAN ACTS
• Indispensable knowledge. • Without moral perception, man is only an animal. • Without morality, man as a rational being is a failure.
• It must be performed by a conscious agent who is aware of what he is doingand of its consequences. • It must be performed by an agent, who is acting freely, that is, by his ownvolition and powers. An action done under duress and against one’s will is not entirely a free action. • It must be performed by an agent who decides willfully to perform the act. This willfulness is the result to perform an act here and now, or in some future time.
KINDS OF HUMAN ACTS • Elicited Acts are those performed by the will and are not bodily externalized. a. Wish is the tendency of will toward something, whether this is realizable or not. b. Intention is the tendency of the will towards something attainable butwithout necessarily committing oneself to attain it. c. Consent is the acceptance of the will of those needed to carry out the intention.

TRIVIA • Code of Ethics was introduced in 1954, it is not a new concept to the field of law enforcement. • Sir Robert Peel of England Metropolitan Police in 1829 introduced the following Principles which might be considered as a version of Code of Ethics.
6. On all occasions he may exploit to receive in the fullest support in the properexercise of his authority. 7. He must remember that there is no qualification so indispensable as a perfect command of temper. 8. He shall never suffer himself to be moved in the slightest degree by anylanguage or threats that maybe used. 9.If he does his duty in a quiet and determined manner, such conduct will probably excite the well-disposed of the bystanders to assist him if he requires them. 10. Particular care is to be taken that the constables of the police do not form falsenotions of their duties and powers.
6. Police use physical force to the extent necessary to secure observance of thelawor to restore order only when the expertise of persuasion, advice, andwarning is found to be insufficient. 7. Police at all-time should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition; the police are public and the public are thepolice. The police are only full-time individuals charged with the duties thatare incumbent on all of the citizens. 8. The police should always direct their actions strictly toward their functions and never appear to usurp the powers of the judiciary. 9. The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it.
Sir Robert Peel Code of Ethics 1. It should be understood at outset the principle objects to be obtained is the prevention of crime. 2. Great and every effort of the police are to be directed. The security of the persons and property and the preservation of a police establishment will thus be better effective than in the detection and punishment of the offender after hehad succeeded in committing crime. 3. The constable will be civil and obliging to all people of every rank and class. 4. The constable must be particularly cautious not to interfere idly or unnecessarily in order to make a display of his authority. 5. When required to act he will do so with decision and boldness.
SIR ROBERT PEEL’S NINE PRINCIPLES OF POLICING:
1. The basic mission for whom the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder. 2. The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon public approval of police actions. 3. Police must secure the willing cooperation of the public in voluntary observance of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public. 4. The degree of cooperation of the public that can be secured diminishes proportionally to the necessity of the use of force. 5. Police seek and preserve public favor not by catering to public opinion but by constantly demonstrating absolute impartial service to the law.
