Ethical Dilemma Worksheet

Incident Review

|What is the ethical issue or problem? Identify the issue succinctly. |
|The ethical issue that is presented is the officers know that the husband was driving while intoxicated; they know that he has |
|lied, and they know based off of the 911 call that the wife was abused. The law states that nothing can be done because nothing |
|was observed. |
|What are the most important facts? Which facts have the most bearing on the ethical decision presented? Include any important |
|potential economic, social, or political pressures, and exclude inconsequential facts. |
|The most important facts are that the husband has an alcohol level of 2.0 which is two times the legal limit, the hood of the car |
|was hot, but when asked the pair said the car had not been driven in at least four hours. Also, that the wife had made a 911 call |
|saying that abuse had occurred, but there are no visible marks to the officers when they get there. The facts that have the most |
|bearing are that the car hood was hot, she had stated that her husband had taken off and that she was concerned, the husband had |
|dropped the keys when observed walking up the sidewalk, and that he had an alcohol level of 2.0. Officer Nixon is a 20-year |
|veteran and has seen this situation before and knows what the laws are, while Officer Rock is just starting and may be eager to |
|jump. But the law clearly states that the officer has to observe an individual committing these crimes in order for there to be an|
|arrest. |
|Identify each claimant
