DISCIPLINARY - Universal Policy
You must realize that Law Enforcement is a very rewarding career and has many opportunities, but with these comes responsibilities. Our post focuses on the term "Integrity" which means the ability one has to be truthful, and accept responsibility for their own actions. Law Enforcement is primarily based on Integrity, and individuals whom lack the ability to demonstrate integrity would otherwise be denied or terminated. Please keep in mind, when working in the field, or just interviewing, always be truthful, and be responsible for yourself, and your community.
