Federal Probation Officers Association Code of Ethics
As a Federal Probation Officer, I am dedicated to
rendering professional service to the courts, the parole authorities, and the
community at large in effecting the social adjustment of the offender.
I will conduct my personal life with decorum, will neither accept nor
grant favors in connection with my office, and will put loyalty to moral
principles above personal consideration.
I will uphold the law with dignity and with complete awareness of the
prestige and stature of the judicial system of which I am a part. I will be ever cognizant of my responsibility to the
community which I serve.
I will strive to be objective in the performance of my duties;
respect the inalienable rights of all persons;
appreciate the inherent worth of the individual;
and uphold inviolate those confidences which can be reposed in me.
I will cooperate with my fellow workers and related agencies and will
continually attempt to improve my professional standards through seeking
knowledge and understanding.
I recognize my office as a symbol of public faith and I accept it as a
public trust to be held as long as I am true to the ethics of the Federal
Probation Service. I will
constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to
my chosen profession.
