Does the NADSP Code of Ethics replace the Justice Center Code of Conduct?
No. We realize that most agencies ask staff to sign-off on at least three codes—the Justice Center Code of Conduct, the agency’s corporate compliance plan and/or code of conduct, and the NADSP Code of Ethics. The intention is that by implementing the NADSP Code of Ethics, staff will ACT ethically, meaning they will measure their decisions against ethical principles. To do that, the ethics tenets need to be understood and made available so each of us may compare our potential actions with the ethical principles that underscore all of the core competencies.
RCWT Region 2 South’s Center for Workforce Transformation, with assistance from NYSACRA and NADSP, created a Code of Ethics Manual that exemplifies ethics in action.
