Chapter Analysis

The need and the want to establish some sort of legal policing unit by the settlers of a new country proved to be challenging from the very beginning. In agreeance, settlers were willing to sacrifice certain liberties in order to make sure that their lives, their property and their political interests were protected. In coming up with such an entity, the settler's had to make sure this new legal body of authority was to be trusted and when implementing its authority, "had to be fair, just and equitably exercised." (Fitch 2014) Yet at the same time, they also had to make sure that its new policing unit did not resemble or function anything like the environment to which they fled from in the first place.
By giving such power to those they thought were loyal to their interests, such as friends and family, they thought that their problem would be solved. This conflict between loyalty and the actual functions of a law enforcement officer has been apparent since the birth of law enforcement and continues to be a problem today. Though it seemed that the meeting in 1893 which formed the National Police Chiefs Unionstrayed from their original purpose, what came aboutwas something that every law enforcement officer would try to strive for;The Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.
Within the law enforcement code of ethics, the responsibilities and duties of a police officer are entailed. Though the original codes have been replaced or slightly modified from their original form, they continue to incorporate the same ideals. Take for example, the City of Conyers Code of Ethics as stated in their 2008 standard operating procedures manual section 1-3 issued by the Chief of Police (Standard Operating Procedures, 2001). These ethical mandates were created to assist law enforcement officers on a daily basis as well as assist in their efforts in reaching the highest possible standard of professional policing. These codes are meticulously written and divided into nine articles. They include:
Article one - Primary responsibilities of a Police Officer.
Article two - Performance of the duties of a Police Officer.
Article three – Discretion
Article four – Use of Force
Article five – Confidentiality
Article six – Integrity
Article seven – Cooperation with other officers and agencies
Article eight – Personal/professional capabilities
Article nine – Private lives
Understanding what misconduct entails is a feat within itself since it can include a large quantity of things. In brief, misconduct has been used to refer to those inappropriate actions taken by police officers when performing their duties. Those actions can include the acceptance of a free cup to the falsifications of documents or property. Throughout the country, law enforcement agencies have strived to recruit, hire and train basically the best of the best before going into the academy. Several attempts to reduce or prevent any form of misconduct from occurring have been made; however, some cases still...
