As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, my primary goal is to serve my community; to safeguard lives and property; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all of the members of my community.

I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of the members of my community. Honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Any information that is of confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept confidential unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.

I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for violations of the law and with relentless prosecution of all violators to achieve compliance to protect and preserve the livability, health and safety of my community, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary measures to achieve compliance while maintaining honesty and equal enforcement. I will always conduct myself in the manner that my actions can never be perceived to involve favoritism or any other form of personal benefit from my official duties while a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers.

I accept the badge of my office and will diligently perform my duties to protect this symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the code enforcement profession. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives.

  1. As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, I will work for the common goals of the organization, my profession and most importantly, my employer.
  2. As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, I will conduct myself to be a model for my community, friends, co-workers and my family.
  3. As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, I will be accountable and accept responsibilities for my actions, both personally and professionally.
  4. As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, I will make all decisions and actions to be free of prejudice, partiality, and unimpeded by conflicts of interest.
  5. As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, I will honor the spirit as well as the letter of the law while performing my official duties.
  6. As a member of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers, I will safeguard public confidence in the integrity of the government by avoiding impropriety and conduct unbefitting of my duties. I will not conduct myself in a manner that will tarnish the trust the public has placed in me.
