AJS 544 Week 4 DQ 3 -
This professional observation of unethical conduct shocked me. I worked arson cases with the firemen. Leadership and organizational culture can create unethical behavior. For example, a supervisor sets a conduct and ethical standard for an organization. Firemen, in theory, are supposed to assist in reducing and eliminating fires to protect the public from injury. Such role expectations and boundaries serve to protect the profession and to safeguard the welfare of clients (Becvar, Bevar, & Canfield, 1997, p. 144). Support staff may or may not synthesize behaviors into professional practice. Each person in criminal justice has a choice to be unethical or ethical.
