The Code of Ethics is the written guide to the principles that every member of the policing profession of England and Wales is expected to uphold and the standards of behaviour they are expected to meet.

It is the first time these principles and standards of behaviour have been set out in a single document, and is intended to be used on a day-to-day basis to guide behaviour and decision-making.

The Code of Ethics has been produced by the College of Policing in its role as the professional body for policing. It sets and defines the exemplary standards of behaviour for everyone who works in policing.
