Sample Codes of Conduct for Public Safety

MTAS was asked for sample codes of conduct for public safety after incidents of police or fire department employees being arrested for DUI, public intoxication, or assault.

Sorry for the delay in responding to your inquiry. I was a bit confused by your request for benchmarking data dealing with codes of conduct. Benchmarking to me means statistics and data and neither our Police Consultant nor Fire Consultant are familiar with that type of available data.
Dennis Wolf, MTAS Fire Consultant offered the attached SOP dealing with conduct issues. Also, here is a link to the City of Columbia Administrative Procedures involving general rules for Fire officers - http://www.mtas.tennessee.edu/Citydept/Fire/SOG/Officer%20Rules.htm

Additionally, MTAS has several sets of Standard Operating Procedures in Knowledgebase (http://www.mtas.tennessee.edu/public/web.nsf/GoogleCustomSearch?openform&searchquery=sop) that may also be helpful.

I hope this information is helpful. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or I can be of any further assistance.
