Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
in this situation it is easy to lose the job if the leutenat gets to know that you had approched his supervisor.again there is a possible promotion if the supervisor gets to investigate the case and gets to know that it was true indeed that there was a cover up being done by the leutenant ,this could be a way of rewarding you for te good job.
