"Secret Service Tightens Conduct Policy"

Secret Service Conduct Policy: Agency Tightens Rules After Prostitution Scandal
 
Secret Service Policy Prostitution Scandal  WASHINGTON  - Seeking to shake off the disgrace of a prostitution scandal, the Secret Service late Friday tightened conduct rules for its agents to prohibit them from drinking excessively, visiting disreputable establishments while traveling or bringing foreigners to their hotel rooms.
The new behavior policies apply to Secret Service agents even when they are off duty while traveling, barring them from drinking alcohol within 10 hours of working, according to a memorandum describing the changes obtained by The Associated Press. In some cases under the new rules, chaperones will accompany agents on trips. The embattled Secret Service director, Mark Sullivan, urged agents and other employees to "consider your conduct through the lens of the past several weeks."

Comment.....When I was in the Military or working for the Government we were told that there were places that were "Off Limits" and we were given a little book called the "The Six Articles of the Code of Conduct". Yes, the first five rules were about if we were captured by the enemy...But part six reads as follows....  

"I will never forget that I am an American, fighting for freedom, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America".

We were also told that we were all Representatives and a Reflection of the men and woman in the United States...I thought it was still that way?
