The unwritten code of law enforcement. Intimidate. Write off. Never acknowledge a mistake. Avoid the media scrutiny. Protect your "family". By which family means you and your fellow law enforcement officers.
The Blue Code of Silence (also known as the "Blue Shield") is an unwritten rule among police
officers not to report on another colleague's errors, misconducts or
crimes. Other names associated with the Blue Code of Silence are the
Blue Wall, Curtain, Veil, or Cocoon. If questioned about an incident of
misconduct involving another officer (e.g. during the course of an
official inquiry), while following the Blue Code of Silence, the officer
being questioned would claim ignorance of another officer's wrongdoing.
Some police officers enforce a tribal value system also known as an
emotional value system which is considered to be a "police family" or
"police brotherhood". The tribal value system is a part of the Blue Code
of Silence. Members of the tribal system generally receive emotional
support and security from other police officers. The Blue Code of
Silence is considered to be controversial because it questions ethics
and values in law enforcement. In some cases, many police officers have been pressured into following the Blue Code of Silence.
