Service Before Self  
Service is the foundation of the Los Angeles Airport Police Division’s value system. We 
seek to always be aware of those who need our assistance, our cooperation, and/or 
our support. We seek to always meet or exceed their expectations for service before 
we consider our personal or organizational needs.

Fairness, impartiality, flexibility, and openness will be guiding principles as we apply 
the law.

Respect for People  
We are in the business of serving people. We recognize the dignity of all people, and 
will treat them accordingly. We will respond with sincerity to the needs of those who 
are concerned for their safety, require important information, or are temporarily 
unable to provide for themselves.

Commitment to Professionalism  
We strive to achieve the highest standards of performance in all aspects of our work. 
We have a continuing commitment to operational excellence and strive to create an 
environment that instills an attitude and behavior that focuses on people in a 
constructive and positive way. We take pride in the nobility of our profession and 
derive personal and professional satisfaction from the effective performance of our 

Integrity in All We Say and Do  
We commit ourselves to the highest standards of trust, responsibility and discipline 
while promoting justice in a fair and impartial manner. We will demonstrate, through 
our actions, an uncompromising allegiance to the Police Officer’s Code of Ethics. Each
