To abide by a strict line of conduct

< Previous | Next >
"Police must abide by a strict LINE of conduct TOWARDS criminal behaviours". Is this sentence correct? Google tells me "code" in place of "line". And is it "towards" the right preposition?

    Grammatically the sentence is perfectly correct. It is fairly clear what you intend to say but your words don't sound like authentic English.

    My suggestion

    "Police must abide by a strict code of conduct when dealing with criminal behaviours"
