In the study of ethics, it is critical to understand that the motive is as important as the act. When someone refrains from misconduct only because they fear negative repercussions, they cannot really be viewed as ethical. Ethics is concerned with encouraging you to do what you know you should do. It is not only doing the right thing, but also doing it for the right reason. This course will help you by explaining the dynamics of ethics in the law enforcement field, how to better understand the ethical dilemmas of fellow officers, and how to avoid ethical pitfalls yourself.
