Imperial Service Code of Conduct
The Imperial Service Code of Conduct is the base code by which all members, enlisted and officer hold each other accountable. It was formally decreed as a law for the Imperial Service on the 24th of April 2021. It is as follows:
I am a professional Imperial Service member.
I am sworn to follow the rules, regulations and guidelines of the Imperial Service and Aksum Imperium wherever it exists.
In carrying out my duties I will obey all applicable provisions and guidelines of the Imperial Service.
I will obey the orders of my superiors.
I will enforce the guidelines of the Imperial Service professionally without prejudice or partially. I recognize that persons I encounter in my presence as a member of the Imperial Service are entitled to be treated with respect and courtesy.
As a member of the Imperial Service, I acknowledge that I am a servant and protector of the Imperium and that my authority comes from the Supreme Commander through the leaders appointed over me; and I will never abuse this honor. As such I will conduct my duty with honor and integrity.
I will never sacrifice my integrity or the reputation of the Imperial Service.
In preparing reports and in giving oral or written statements, I will provide only truthful testimonies.
I will scrupulously safeguard all evidence, property, resources, and personnel for which I am responsible.
I will politely decline any gratuity I may be offered during my duties and will encourage the other members of my team to follow my example. I will immediately report any attempt to bribe any Imperial Service member or witness, and will take actions against the individuals where appropriate by filing the proper report to the proper authority.
I will respect the property of others and will attempt to avoid or minimize any damage to that property.
As a member of the Imperial Service I will constantly strive to improve my professionalism through education, training, and experience.
The Imperial Service Code of Justice
The Imperial Service Code of Justice is the body of language the Sovereign and Supreme Commander has decreed as law for the Imperial Service. It is a part of Title 22 of the Imperial Code. Since the Sovereign has the sole prerogative to command and control the Imperial Service, a decree is issued. In the ISCJ the High Marshal exercises duties delegated to him by the Supreme Commander, however, the Supreme Commander may at anytime perform those functions.
Directives, Policies, Regulations, and Instructions
The Supreme Commander (SC) issues directives, policies, regulations, and instructions to the Imperial Service as a whole or to individual parts of it. As a general practice, the SC gives directive guidance to the High Marshal of the Imperium, who in turn issues directives in his name. Each Service may further issue documents for their specific areas as long as they do not take away from those documents issued by higher.
