All police chiefs must be concerned with the behavior of their personnel on and off duty, in jurisdiction or out of jurisdiction.
In 1995, police officers from the New York City Police Department were in Washington, D.C. for ceremonies in connection with “Police Week.” Several NYPD officers “got drunk in their hotel, took off their clothes, poured beer down an escalator rail, and then slid down the rail” (Driesbach, 2009 p. 196). When hotel management and police officials of the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) complained, the NYPD officers stated that they were not in their home jurisdiction of New York City and were off duty. MPD made no arrests. This assignment requires a written critique of the professionalism of the NYPD officers involved in the incident. Should police officers be held to a higher standard of behavior than other citizens? You are also tasked to examine the incident from the perspective of two different police chiefs. As the respective chiefs, what action would you take (if any) to respond to officers in this incident?
The paper should be seven (7) pages, excluding the cover, abstract and reference pages. To analyze the issues outlined above, the paper should use a minimum of four (4) scholarly references, in addition to (Dreisbach, 2009) along with any relevant sources.
At least two (2) of the scholarly references should be in addition to those materials found in your course content. See the syllabus for format information.
This assignment asks you to address several issues and answer several questions. To ensure consistency, follow the format below:
Cover page with name, course title and number, running head, and date submitted (APA format)
