The Milton Police Department recognizes the right of the public to be fully and accurately informed in all matters of public safety and is aware that the news media is responsible for providing this information to the public. Our goal is to maintain a relationship with the members of the news media that is based upon trust, cooperation and mutual interest. To accomplish this goal, the department provides complete and accurate information, within legal and investigatory limits, to all accredited media representatives.

Code of Ethics
As a Law Enforcement Officer, My fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all men to liberty, equality and justice.
I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. 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. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.
I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities of friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill-will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.
I recognize the badge of my office as a 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 police service. I will constantly strive to achieve the objective and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession, Law Enforcement.
