JLBC ETHICS AND CONDUCT


JLBC ETHICS AND CONDUCT

Ethics and professionalism go hand in hand. JLBC Cadets Security Guards are entrusted with the safety of lives and property. They are often a company􏰀s first-line ambassadors to the public and are responsible for enforcing safety and integrity rules in the workplace. The job requires the highest levels of integrity, honor, and discretion􏰃ethics.

The essence of a Security Guard􏰀s position is that conduct is at the highest levels of professionalism and integrity. This is expected of security Guards; anything else is unacceptable.

If you can􏰀t trust the people responsible for protecting lives and property to act ethically, who can you trust?

THE SECURITY GUARD CODE OF ETHICS

New York State has adopted a code of ethics for Security Guards.

The code of ethics formalizes the idea􏰃and rule􏰃that measurable standards of conduct are expected from everyone who holds a security Guard position.

Code of Ethics defined

The code of ethics is a statement that incorporates moral and ethical principles and philosophies. It measures a person􏰀s activities against a standard of behavior. The legend of ethics communicates these rules to all security guards by outlining basic rules of expected conduct. How the personnel of a business conducts their activities directly affects whether a business succeeds or falls.

Security Guards are entrusted to protect persons and property from harm and so, by definition, must possess a high degree of integrity and ethical standards.

Ethical

behavior is, therefore, a direct job function of Security Guards.

A published and public code of ethics increases the effectiveness and role of the security Guard.

The code of ethics will help the security industry attract a better caliber of guards.

The code of ethics will help create a professional environment to work, reduce

turnover rates, and increase effectiveness.

The code of ethics will enhance how law enforcement agencies and the general public

view private security.

The code of ethics will help protect people􏰀s rights and reduce abuses of authority.

CODE OF ETHICS FOR SECURITY GUARDS

In my capacity as a Security Guard hired to prevent, report and deter crime, I pledge:

1. To protect life and property; prevent and reduce crime committed against my employer/client􏰀s business or other organizations and institutions to which I am assigned; abide by the Constitution of the United States.
