Guide to Employee Discipline for Public Safety (Revised May 2020)
The ability of a chief of police to manage an organization as complex and important as a municipal police department is enhanced by the establishment of comprehensive, clear and reasonable rules and regulations that define prohibited and required conduct for all police officers. Since police officers have such broad authority to directly and immediately impact the constitutional rights and the lives of the people with whom they interact on a daily basis, they must be provided with specific information and training as to what actions they are expected to take under various circumstances as well as what actions are prohibited. This Guide includes discussions on the authority to discipline, terminating probationary employees, progressive discipline, disciplinary procedures, case examples, and many other topics.
