Chapter 1 Writing Assignment

You are a campus police officer at Faulkner University. Your chief directs you to write traffic tickets to everyone who uses the wrong lane to exit campus after a series of three accidents, one with injury, occurred at the exit. After writing six tickets the first day, you pull over a nice SUV which turns out to be a member of the Board of Trustees. She says, "You know as a Trustee, I also choose to donate a lot of money to this university. In fact, that body armor you're wearing was purchased with my year end donation. You're gonna give me a warning aren't you?"

What Choices do you have?

Ethics, dilemmas, discretion, and issues facing these factors are at the core root of many Criminal Justice related decisions. Outside the Criminal Justice field, ethical decisions may only affect an organization's division or possibly the entire company, but inside the Criminal Justice field, ethical decisions can affect thousands of people and can change policies, procedures, and even case law. Everyone has their own personal beliefs and values, and sometimes those beliefs and values affect their discretion and decisions.

Explain your choices in this scenario by addressing the following:

Discuss the variety of ethical dilemmas a police officer may encounter. In what situation might it be acceptable for an officer to behave unethically?

In what situations might an officer's adherence to ethics turn out poorly for them and/or their community or department?

If you were a police officer, how would you ensure your high level of ethics in this scenario? Explain your position(s).

Chapter 2 Writing Assignment

You work part time providing security and as a traffic accident investigator for a large law firm. One of the junior partners asks you to drive him to court in Mobile because he put down the wrong time for a hearing on his calendar. Your already going 75 on I-65 between Greenville and Evergreen in a light rain when he says, "Don't tell anyone I'm asking you to do this, but if you will speed up to 95, I'll get there in time, I won't get in trouble with the partners, and I'll tip you a $100." While you are parked waiting on him outside your car by the courthouse, a senior partner from the Montgomery office walks by from the parking lot, sees you and says, "Was that you that passed me going at least 90 MPH just below Evergreen? Why were you flying so fast to get here?"

Most of us were taught right and wrong from a parent, sibling, friend, teacher, or other family members. We all have a framework for our value system, moral behavior, principles, and how we live our lives. Our system of beliefs is influenced by those around us, our religious beliefs, our education, and our workplace. We all want to be treated fairly and with respect. Our moral system and beliefs determine how we treat people and react to a variety of situations in the Criminal Justice field. Explain your choices in this scenario by addressing the following:

Discuss the balance between making the moral decision and maintaining good relationships with your coworkers. Which do you feel often holds the most weight? In what situations do you think making the moral decision is the better choice? In what situation is it not?

Discuss the strategies you would take when you make the moral decision and risk being labeled a "rat" by your coworkers.

Chapter One Writing Assignment
Being a police officer or, broadly, a law enforcement agent is a mission entailing a lot
of ethical dilemmas and considerations. These dilemmas and considerations might result from
the social, economic, or politic contingencies prevailing in the place where the police officer
serves (Adams & Mastracci, 2017). For instance, in the example of the case study, the ethical
dilemma comes from the social and economic factors prevailing in the management of the
university. The woman stopped in the nice SUV turned out to be a member of the board of
trustees who makes generous donations to the administration. As such, she considers that she
must be treated differently and may not be subjected to the same set of rules as the other
parents, students or board members. Out of the context of this case study, police officers
might encounter ethical dilemmas in their community. For instance, when the suspects or
other people involved in a case turn out to be some very close members of the police officer.
In such a situation, these people might attempt to appeal to the feelings and emotions of the
police officer to be treated differently. Finally, a police officer may encounter an ethical
dilemma when he/she broke the law in a situation where nobody else saw it or can be aware
of it. For instance, if a policeman arrested and acted violently against a person who turned to
be innocent and not involved in what happened, the police officer might be tempted to not
report the situation (Adams & Mastracci, 2017). Furthermore, he can deny what happened.
Regardless of the context, no situation must allow a police officer to behave unethically.
According to Han (2018), a policeman is a person that represents the law before...
