Assignment Details

As law enforcement has come under more and more scrutiny, there is a call for more accountability for communities to have trust in people patrolling their neighborhoods. Examine the moral and ethical obligations that law enforcement has as a source of authority in society.

Address the following questions:

  • How can law enforcement investigate its own and have public trust?
  • What do you believe would be the consequences of an outside agency being given the authority to investigate law enforcement?

Review the answers provided by other students. Choose 2 and discuss what ethical principles should be part of every law enforcement organization. Discuss how those principles should be upheld, and create rubrics for measuring those standards. Address the need for transparency for all forms of investigations and how that transparency can be delivered to the public’s satisfaction.
