Mission Statement: The Board of Ethics was established in 1969 with the purpose of adopting ethical standards for all town officials and employees. Pursuant to the Charter of the Town of Hamden, the Board is also charged with the responsibility of receiving and investigating complaints, holding hearings regarding potential violations of the code of ethics. The Board serves as an advisory capacity to the Mayor and other town officials by rendering advisory opinions as to whether a violation of the Town Charter has occurred.

The Board strives to convey to all town employees the importance of pursuing the highest degree of integrity and honesty. Public office is a public trust. The trust of the public is essential for government to function effectively. Public policy developed by governmental officials and employees affects every citizen of the municipality, and it must be based on honest and fair deliberations and decisions.
