The Thin Blue Line


As you prepare for graduation, you will be deciding on either graduate school or job placement. For those students selecting the job process, there are many stages to consider, one of which is the interview. As a criminal justice major, you may pursue jobs in the law enforcement arena. During the interview process and training, law enforcement agencies may ask substantive questions related to ethics or officer trust. Although there are many professions that compel ethical behavior, the cornerstone of law enforcement relies on officer trust.


Submission Details:


In at least 250 words, post to the Discussion Area your responses to the following questions:


Consider the below question as a possible interview question. If you were asked this during an interview, how would you respond?

Use both the textbook and reputable outside resources from the Internet and Argosy University online library resources to locate the laws, statutes, and cases.
