The police, in their conduct and deportment, must be quiet, civil and orderly; in the performance of their duty they must be attentive and zealous, control their tempers and exercise the utmost patience and discretion. They must at all times refrain from harsh, violent, coarse and profane language; when asked a question, they shall answer not in a short and careless manner but with all possible attention and courtesy, at the same time avoiding as much as possible entering into unnecessary conversation. They shall, in a respectful manner, give their names and numbers to all persons who inquire.— Rule 35, section 1.

They must be particularly careful not to interfere idly or unnecessarily. When required to act they shall do so with energy and decision; and in the proper exercise of their authority they will receive the fullest support.- Rule 35, section 3.

Police Commissioner for the City of Boston,

STEPHEN O'MEARA.

Members of the force may hope to rise to higher positions through activity, intelligence and good conduct. As in all other large bodies of men, whether military, industrial or commercial, the great majority must be in the ranks at any given time. The members of the force have the satisfaction, however, of knowing that every advanced position is filled by an officer who began at the bottom; that all advanced positions that exist are theirs; and that promotions are influenced by no consideration whatever except opportunity and the merit of the man.- Rule 5, section 2.

The system of discipline seeks to deal with men by hand rather than with machinery; to prove to them that their superiors are guided by common sense and a spirit of fair play and that, though the interest of the public is always first and the interest of the whole department is always second, the comfort, the welfare and the ambitions of the individual members of the force are never forgotten.— From the Annual Report of the Police Commissioner, 1908.
