This FBI-LEEDA Leadership Integrity on-line distance learning program focuses on the importance of ethics, integrity and procedural justice to the daily operation of law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement officers are held to a high standard and require a level of public trust, commonly known as police legitimacy. When officers display conduct unbecoming, public trust is eroded and the image of an agency is tarnished. This program will provide lessons in reasoning that lead officers to appropriate decisions and resolutions.
Module One: Ethics, Integrity & Procedural Justice
This topic will discuss the three basic theories that help define the role of ethics in law enforcement. It will identify the supervisors’ role in relation to ethics within an organization. Topics such as code of conduct, legal standards and accountability will be discussed. In addition, the module will focus on lying as a public policy and Brady/Giglio requirements for police departments.
Module Two: Decision Making & Supervisory Responsibility
This module will review and analyze several models in critical thinking and ethical decision-making. The critical role of supervisors in creating an ethical climate for their subordinates will be discussed. The module will also discuss how a code of silence and elements of police subculture exist within police organizations.
Module Three: Procedural Justice & Police Legitimacy
This module will discuss and define procedural justice and how to increase police legitimacy, and examine internal and external procedural justice. The purpose of this module is to create an understanding of procedural justice and its core principles. In addition, we will examine several case studies on police morality.
Module Four: Integrity
This module will cover the components of integrity and values. Topics including why officers become involved in misconduct, and how to improve integrity, will be discussed. The module will also identify signs to look for when integrity is in question, and explain how agencies can take steps to help promote integrity.
