Written Directives

It is the policy of the Erie Police Department to establish written directives to give employees direction in order to perform their duties in an acceptable, honorable, consistent and justifiable manner.  Written directives are made up of basically four parts: definitions, policies, procedures and rules. It is the employee’s responsibility to become familiar with and abide by all the directives.  The Erie Police Department Written Directives were designed for easy reference and frequent use.
