This page displays information for members of the public who have the occupation labelled “police constable”, … you didn’t ACTUALLY think you were this label did you!?
I, .. .. of .. .. do solemnly and sincerely declare and affirm that I will well and truly serve the Queen in the office of constable, with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality, upholding fundamental human rights and according equal respect to all people; and that I will, to the best of my power, cause the peace to be kept and preserved and prevent all offences against people and property; and that while I continue to hold the said office I will to the best of my skill and knowledge discharge all the duties thereof faithfully according to law.
Do “fundamental human rights” include upholding “inalienable” human rights too? I would think they were one and the same thing … surely.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Please note, these are just two of many “INALIENABLE” fundamental rights and freedoms. Inalienable is emphasised for a reason, … understand its meaning and, understand that YOU THE READER have these rights too and they are primary to ANYTHING else!
Foundations – Concepts
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Life, Liberty, & Security Of Person:
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
PLAIN LANGUAGE VERSION:
You have the right to live, and to live in freedom and safety.
Our local and national governments are responsible for working towards providing us safety and security. The tools that are used—for instance, laws or a police force—should not hinder our freedoms and rights. It is our responsibility to influence our governments to guarantee this right to everybody.
Liberty is freedom in the public sphere, freedom from captivity, oppression or despotic rule.
Equal Protection Of The Law:
All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
PLAIN LANGUAGE VERSION:
The law is the same for everyone; it should be applied in the same way to all.
The principle of equality before the law is especially important for groups that are in the minority, such as indigenous people, or groups that have less political or other power, such as the poor. This also means that judges, government officials and police are also answerable to the same body of law.
To incite discrimination is to encourage others to practice discrimination.
