Policy on Vision, Mission, Motto, Ethos, Ethics & Values for CISF


The Central Industrial Security Force came into existence in 1969, following a major fire incident in HEC, Ranchi. Over the last 50 years the force has seen many ups and downs, given the unique mandate with which the force came into existence i.e. to give protection and security to the employees and the property of the Public Sector Undertakings. In keeping with changing demands of the dynamic nature of security, the force has evolved, re-oriented and updated the nature of professional services rendered and metamorphosized from being an industrial security force into a multi-talented, multi-tasking and multi-faceted force, ready to face newer challenges in the future.

The Group-II was constituted by the FHQrs for “laying down a policy on:

  1. Vision
  2. Mission
  3. Motto
  4. Ethos
  5. Ethics
  6. Values

To be imbibed and practised by all members of CISF to face future challenges with confidence and professionalism”

As a premier organization that has a large work force, we must define our vision, mission, motto, ethos, ethics and values, and put them down in writing as a policy document, so that it serves as a guideline and reference point for our members on what is expected of them, how to act and behave and give the organization its character and identity. They define the purpose, spirit and character of the organization.

Need for Ethos, Values and Ethics Policy

The CISF is celebrating the 50th year of its existence i.e. celebrating the Golden Jubilee Year. On this occasion it is felt that a policy on ethos, values and ethics, and a vision statement to establish clear direction, are required to reinforce our thought and provide direction.

The Ethos, Values and Ethics policy of an organization

  1. Shape its “Character”
  2. Create a desired “Identity”
  3. Lay out principles that guide organization’s policies and strategies
  4. Lay out principles that guide organization’s policies and strategies
  5. Help set clear “organizational goals”
  6. Establish “standards for organizational performance”
