Course Description

Select ethical dilemmas from several of the four domains of police and public safety psychology practice are addressed from the perspectives of psychologists and public safety command staff. Vignettes discussed will emphasize the practical and ethical differences each panelist experienced, along with the panelists' viewpoint in each ethical dilemma and how it was resolved. Examples include responses to officer involved shooting incidents, the creation of a wellness program, fitness-for-duty evaluations, and pre-employment evaluations involving deployed military personnel. Considerations will be tied to the American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, relevant legal statues, union considerations, and administrative concerns.
