Administrative Scenario: You are in charge of the administrative investigation. You must identify legal, ethical, and moral character violations that occurred. Review the following interviews:

  • Interview 1

    You interview Officer X, and he denies being in the man’s home with the man’s wife and fraternizing with her. Officer X said that Officer Y is his alibi. Officer X said that he was with Officer Y at Officer Y’s house when the alleged fraternization happened. 

  • Interview 2

    You interview Officer Y, and he initially verifies Officer X’s story. However, under interrogation, Officer Y changes his story, and he admits that he was not with Officer X and that he lied for Officer X because Officer X asked him to do so. Subsequently, Officer Y is no longer an alibi for Officer X. 

  • Interview 3

    You re-interview Officer X, and he continues denying fraternization and denies being in the man’s home with the man’s wife. However, when you tell Officer X that Officer Y admitted to lying for him, Officer X admits to you that he lied and that he did fraternize with the other man’s wife and that he was alone with her in her home.

In a 2-3-page paper, answer the following administrative questions:

  • Did a fraternization policy violation occur? What is the purpose of having and enforcing fraternization policies? Why do agencies have fraternization policies?
  • Did Officer X lie during the administrative investigation? Did Officer X encourage Officer Y to lie for him?

    Is this merely an ethical issue, or does it also involve moral turpitude?
    When does an ethical issue rise to the level of moral turpitude?
    When does a moral issue rise to the level of criminality?

  • If the media find out about this investigation, what will the public expect you to do about it?
  • Sometimes, the cover-up is worse than the original act itself. As a criminal justice administrator, what is the best way to handle this kind of situation?
