The aim of Discipline Branch is to engender pride, trust and confidence in the integrity of the PSNI through the prevention and detection of corruption, dishonesty or unethical behaviour. 

The PSNI Code of Ethics sets the standards of behaviour expected of officers both on and off duty, and each PSNI District and Department has a designated ‘Professional Standards Champion’ to promote and ensure that officers work and aspire to these standards. 

An officer involved in any wrongdoing can expect to be subject to a robust internal investigation and consistent with the gravity of the offence, disciplined accordingly.
