Core Values

Ethics begins with integrity. Integrity means different things to different people, but in essence it means being honest, doing what you say you will do, and doing what is right even when no one else is watching. Personal integrity is a prerequisite to ethical behavior, and it is the foundation for Peoria’s six core values.

We are:
