Kirkpatrick’s tenure in previous chief’s positions has been marked by her “5 cardinal rules:”
No harassing, bullying or discriminatory language, “including zero tolerance of male white-bashing.”
No lying. “You lie, you die,” she says.
No abuse of authority.
Nothing that causes lack of trust in the department. Examples include no sex on duty, no reckless driving in a patrol car, and never failing to take a rape report.
