Write a five (5) page minimum, DOUBLE SPACED, 12-FONT TIMES ROMAN paper with references and sources cited in APA format. Your cover sheet, abstract and your source citing/references are NOT included in the five page minimum.
Your grade will depend upon the presentation of your analysis and research, the quality of the work presented – whether you give a detailed presentation or a vague overview, whether you addressed all parts of the question asked, and how you support your argument/discussion – as well as the citing of a variety of sources/use of references and whether you met the mandatory minimum page requirement. Please make sure to use AT LEAST 5 sources for your research.
The paper should be written using APA Format. Please make sure you review your paper for spelling, grammar, and format and plagiarism errors before submitting it. Remember that the paper should be typed in Microsoft Word and submitted as an attachment. Your paper will not receive a grade until it is submitted properly. If you need assistance, please let me know.
It is recommended that you use the Keiser Owl Writing Lab to assist you with editing and revising your paper before turning it in.
Please note that APA format requires a cover/title page and a reference page. These do not count toward your 5 page minimum.
You may make your presentation in essay form, though the use of some tables might be helpful. I would expect this project to be 5 pages in length, double spaced

As with law enforcement and court personnel, corrections and probation and parol

As with law enforcement and court personnel, corrections and probation and parole officers are held to a high ethical standard. Corrections and probation and parole agencies must be diligent in their efforts to address acts of malfeasance.
You are assigned to a conduct review board at your agency. The head of your department has instructed each of you to collaborate to review three officers’ conduct issues. You must determine if the conduct engaged in by each of the officers in the scenario is ethical or unethical. Following the determination, you must designate a committee decision and outcome for the officer- involved incident. Each of the officers involved have agreed to a committee review of their action set and will abide by the committee’s findings. Please follow the action steps that follow to guide the committee’s recommendation:
1.) Determine the incident’s classification:
1. No misconduct
2.Misconduct but excusable
3. Minor misconduct
4. Intentional misconduct
5. Major misconduct (conduct unbecoming an officer)
2.) Justify the classification. The designations are progressive in their level of malfeasance. Your rationale should be well detailed and supported. Use the textbook and other credible outside research sources to support your rationale. All components of the events and actions are to be examined and evaluated.
3.) Make a recommendation regarding officer discipline or lack thereof and justify the punishment by explaining the committee’s findings and their reasoning for recommending the discipline.
Use the matrix below to assist in the assignment of consequence:
No misconduct — No punishment
Misconduct but excusable — May include a 1-year counseling letter in the officer’s personnel file. Retraining may be required.
Minor misconduct — 1- to 5-year discipline letter in officer’s personnel file. 1- to 6-month suspension from specialty assignment (SWAT, detectives, marine unit, honor guard, field training officer, etc.). Includes loss of specialty pay for the assignment. Retraining may be required.
Intentional misconduct — Suspension for up to 30 days without pay. Reassignment from specialty unit (SWAT, detectives, marine unit, honor guard, field training officer, etc.). Demotion from rank to former rank (i.e., corporal to officer, sergeant to officer, lieutenant to sergeant). Permanent discipline letter in officer’s personnel file. Training mandated.
Major misconduct (conduct unbecoming an officer) — Suspension for up to 1 year unpaid. Last chance agreement letter (states that any similar misconduct will result in immediate termination) or termination.
4.) Evaluate what type of corruption is presented in each of the incidents (noble cause, structural or affiliation hypothesis, rotten apples/rotten barrels, and /or “slippery slope”). Recommend strategies to control this type of corruption and also ways and means to prevent further instances. How could the agency avoid this behavior (training, policy and procedure, greater supervision, support of “whistleblowers”)?
Your final essay should thoroughly document the committee’s finding and associated recommendation set. This essay should be 3–5 pages in length and use at least two credible outside research sources, including academic journals, to support your view.
