Every day, law enforcement personnel are presented with choices that can have long-term career consequences. Ethical behavior and decision-making are vital to the success and reputation of every law enforcement agency and the well-being of every officer. This presentation takes a deep dive into applied ethics and deals with hidden and ignored ethical challenges within law enforcement. The course was created by world-renowned ethicist Michael Josephson and Detective Captain James Dugan. Jim, whose highly decorated NJ police career was derailed by one bad judgment, provides a unique, sobering, and inspiring perspective.

This presentation addresses the following critical organizational needs: • The major causes of unethical behavior within a law enforcement agency. • The inherent career and officer wellness consequences of unethical behavior - long and short term. • The liability of ethical compromise from the legal and public support point of view. • The critical nature of ethical behavior as a “risk management” strategy. • The Six Pillars of Character® - applying them within your agency.

To register, call Jim Dugan at 949-290-4033 or email
