Professionalism - Standards
Professionalism in policing is of extraordinary importance because of the authority vested in law enforcement officers. It reflects an implicit guarantee that the experience, education, and training of our Deputy Sheriffs uniquely qualify them to meet the challenges present in a changing and dynamic society. Our Deputy Sheriffs are expected to successfully operate within many demanding and conflicting roles, and along these lines, are presumed to possess ethical qualities and above average occupational competence. Working together we will insure that these standards of performance are documented and preserved all the while developing the full personal and professional potential these men and women that sacrifice so much day in and day out for the protection of our way of life.
