2020 Code of Conduct Review

Help improve our Code of Conduct.

There have been significant changes to the social, political and legislative landscape since the department's Code of Conduct was last reviewed and it needs to be updated to reflect these changes.

The Code of Conduct links the department’s values and principles with expected standards of professional conduct. It provides a framework to support staff in their day to day decision making.
