Question: Scenario 22 THE LATE ARRIVAL Your former sergeant was an easy-going guy. If you arrived a few minutes late for work, he regarded it as "no big deal." Your newly appointed sergeant, however, is stringent about punctuality. Last week, you arrived 20 minutes late for your morning shift. The sergeant gave you an oral warning stating, "If it happens again, I'll write a disciplinary report." This morning, you find you have approximately 10 minutes to get to work. The drive usually takes 15 minutes. You consider driving your patrol car with the emergency lights on. Ethically, what should you do?
Ethically, you should not use the emergency lights to get to work faster. Using the patrol car's emergency lights for personal reasons is an abuse of power and could lead to further disciplinary action or even endanger others on the road. Instead, you should accept the responsibility for being late and make a genuine effort to get to work as quickly as possible without breaking the rules. Once you get to work, apologize sincerely to your new sergeant and explain the reason for your tardiness. Ensure that you take necessary steps to not let this happen again in the future, such as setting multiple alarms, planning your schedule better, or finding ways to improve your punctuality. It is essential to show that you respect the new sergeant's rules and are committed to being punctual moving forward.
