Drill of the Week: Basics of Department Discipline

A basic management function for officers may include the discipline of members who fail to meet department expectations or standards. Most organizations will define the limits of discipline and punishment that a officer can issue, but the ability to avoid the use of formal discipline of a member is even more important.

In this drill, review SOG, labor contract rules and regulations and any other form of policy that describe an officer's responsibility and disciplinary procedures.
