I strongly disagree with you. As a police officer you have specialized training that an average citizen does not have, so therefore I feel that you are obligated to help. I believe that an off-duty officer will more likely than not have his gun and possibly his badge on him. I understand that you work from 8-4:30 and you feel no obligation to do your job after you are off the clock. However, your work is administrative work, Is anyones life in danger if you refuse to help after you are off the clock? Did you take an oath to protect public citizens? If the officer lets a criminal of that magnitude get away, what is his mind frame about crime? If he can sleep at night knowing he could've saved someones life and chose not to for
that off-duty jobs that officers take hazes the line between private and public policing, raising questions about accountability, officer decision-making, police/community relationships, (Stoughton 2016). together off-duty jobs add up to over 143,000 full-time sworn officers, that is about a fifth of all state and local officers in the U.S. and about 80% of law enforcement agencies allow officers to engage off-duty jobs, with tens of thousands of officers racking up millions of hours of off-duty….
There are multiple risks associated with being a police officer that all who choose to work this field must embrace. There is a commission in every state on peace officer standards and training. Each agency must meet the minimum standards required by the state. Once an officer has met those standards and gets hired, a lot of training hours are given to the officer for to gain the necessary knowledge and tools for be able to protect the citizens in their community against criminal activities. No matter….
I honestly believe that being a ploice officer is very hard. There are some positives and negatives to it. It is obvious that we are all human and make multiple mistakes, and at times we do not agree on the selection of choices that ploice officers use upon the people. Some of the positives are that police officers have the right of arrresting someone who is using illgeal behavior. For an example, say you are at a plaza walking around with your friends, and suddenly you see someone had too much to….
Civil Liability for Acts of Off-Duty Officers, I've come to the realization that there are many possibilities and outcomes dependent upon the situations off-duty officers put themselves into. When off-duty officers act upon situations that they would normally face when on duty, they are fully liable for the decisions they make. In this specific event, as an off-duty officer, I witnessed a man and a woman arguing where the man then pushed the woman, and I, the officer decided to intervene and the….

to engage in private security work
Hiring police officers to perform private security work has positive aspects and potential pitfalls. Business owners vary in their opinion on hiring police officers. Liability and cost are reasons some prefer to hire private security guards or take other security measures.

The thought could arise: if men didn’t give birth, why should they receive leave? Men didn’t participate in the pain therefore should they actually be handed time off work? Child care is also understood by a majority of the population as just a woman’s job, and plenty of men believe that “their colleagues would judge a father who took the same amount of parental leave as a mother”(Close par….
1. Was Rob’s choice justified? Why or why not?
No, I don’t think Rob’s choice was justified. Rob did not hire this person because she was a smoker nor because she was less qualified. His reason for hiring her was, “Rob had to go with soft reasons. Cathy was a smoker. Rob didn’t like smoking – he considered it disgusting and a sign of weakness of character.” I feel as though Rob was being discriminative towards her.
If Rob would have not hired Cathy because of something that she….

Have you ever wondered what the daily duties of a Probation Officer are? Well I am

and was put on probation for two years. When that happened I thought that my life was over.
But, my probation officer told me that as….
Being a corpsman was a dream job. Meaning I was getting paid to have fun for nearly a decade. I loved being in a position to help people, it’s my calling.
So, what happened? I got married and we had a child on the way and in an instant, rappelling out of helicopters and surviving suicide bombers scared the hell out of me. I wanted to live! Danger was fun, but not so much now and I didn’t want to be gone from my family 26 months out of 32 anymore.
I made the easy decision to transition out. I….
