Ethical Heroes: Ethical Considerations for Peacekeepers
Please note: This program is a two-day event. The program schedule is as follows:
October 15, 2018, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
October 16, 2018, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
This course was developed to counter the traditional law enforcement-related ethics courses that tend to shake and point a proverbial finger at peacekeeping organizations and their peacekeepers. Such poorly delivered programs tend to carry a negative connotation and lose educational and training value. Unlike traditional law enforcement related ethics programs, this program assumes that law enforcement officers are good and noble peacekeepers striving to do the right thing, at the right time, with the right people, and for the right reasons. Specifically, this course explores the ethics problem, the ethical hero challenge, influences on naturally occurring human thought and behavior, and reinforcements to ethical decision-making including peer intervention and the Ethical Hero. This course strives to examine the decision-making process through case studies and discussion. Additionally, this course surveys ethics-related concepts and ethical decision-making processes from a peacekeeping perspective. This course is mission critical to officer safety, public safety, career survival, and positive public relations. This ethics program redefines ethics training for law enforcement.
