The purpose of
Delhi Police is to
uphold the law fairly and firmly;
to prevent crime; to pursue and bring to justice
those who break the law;
to keep the peace in partnership with the community;
to protect, help and reassure the people;
and to be seen to do all this
with integrity, common sense and sound judgement.
We must be
compassionate, courteous and patient,
acting without fear, or favour or prejudice
to the rights of others,
we need to be
professional, calm and restrained
in the face of violence
and apply only that force
which is necessary to accomplish our lawful duty.
We must strive
to reduce the fear of the public
and, so far as we can,
to reflect their priorities in the action we take.
We must respond to
well-founded criticism with a willingness to change.
