Hack the Police Code of Conduct
We believe that everyone has the right to be in a safe and welcoming environment when attending our event.
Being part of this event means:
- Committing to helping each other
- Listening to others views
- Setting an example
- Treating everyone equally
- Respecting your environment and the people around you
To represent yourself to your very best ability, you must always practice:
- No violence
- No harassment
- No discrimination
- No inappropriate imagery or content
Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that counts as harassment and is enough reason to stop doing it.
Attendees asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
Absolutely everyone involved with our activities, including participants, members, sponsors, guests, volunteers, organisers, and our committee members, are subject to our Code of Conduct.
If a person engages in any harassing behaviour, we may take any action we deem appropriate, including (but not limited to) warnings, expulsion, and banning, with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type.
If you are being harassed, or notice someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the team.
In addition to the above, the event is drug free, and the venue is non-smoking. The police officers attending the event will be off-duty and volunteering their time to work with you as part of a creative and productive weekend. Thank you for understanding why this code of conduct is so important to us.
We reserve the right to revise, make exceptions to, or otherwise amend these policies in whole or in part. If you have any questions regarding these policies, please contact the team by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
