Many law enforcement departments, government agencies, and private corporations have reported HUGE benefits from their character initiatives. In this detailed report learn how character:
- Determines Success

- Motivates Achievement
- Builds Relationships
- Increases Health
- Reduces Injuries
- Protects Against Liability
- Promotes Wise Leadership
When I first saw the 49 Character Qualities from Character First, I instantly recognized the power of these working definitions. You will quickly see that the definitions are not dictionary definitions, they are working definitions, which means they are designed to be used in the workplace. What I like about them is that they are goal-oriented and they are observable through behavior. Many of them incorporate the “character test” right into the definition! I have used this vocabulary over the years with my deputies, staff, community, and children. I firmly believe that this list of character definitions is the most powerful management tool I have ever had in my hands. I issued a pocket version to all of my supervisors and encouraged them to use the vocabulary in their day to day interactions with their subordinates. When used properly to praise character over achievements, the results are quite remarkable.
The Ten Virtues of a Law Officer are a character-based code of ethics that sets a standard of police professionalism. A bit different from what you may have seen in other standards of conduct, this code goes beyond behavior and looks at the character that motivates it. Character lies below the surface of personality and behavior. The discerning officer is able to see beyond behavior to impact the underlying character issues. The Ten Virtues are not meant to supplant other codes of ethics that are out there, but to approach it from a different perspective consistent with the message of Police Dynamics. Many law enforcement agencies have purchased framed versions of the Ten Virtues to hang in their squad rooms as a reminder of the high-standards of the police profession.

When you watch this 9-minute video, pay special attention to the “man on the street” interviews. We actually took to the streets of Oklahoma City and asked a simple question, “What do you think of the police?” The answers from some good, law-abiding citizens might surprise you. But this is how you are often viewed by your community! So it makes sense to pay attention. Then I want you to see how the principles of Police Dynamics integrate with the Character First! program. The two together give you a powerful formula for implementing character-based crime-fighting principles within your agency and your individual patrol tactics. This is an excellent video to use in your roll-call training.
