The General Orders Manual of the St. Petersburg Police Department sets forth the responsibilities and standards of conduct expected of department employees. They are statements of policy and procedure dealing with major operational and administrative areas.
While the manual does set forth specific procedures to which adherence is expected, it is not intended to address all situations encountered by members of the department. The judicious exercise of discretion is often required; and, with this in mind, the manual serves as a supplement to individual training and experience.
