Police Union

Police unions need to act like more like police and less like unions.  When an officer gets into trouble the union should provide representation for him.  It is not their job to determine his guilt or innocence of a charge or allegation.

Police unions should stand for ethical and moral and legal behavior in their members.  They should not work to create rules that prevent the punishment of illegal, immoral, or unethical police behavior.  They should not be creating work rules where procedural technicalities get bad officers back on the street.

They should not be shielding officers who do a poor job.  They should allow good officers to receive merit pay.  Officers who do a good job should be rewarded.  Officers ability to do a good job should be enhanced by the union, not stopped by the union, that's what the SGT Says.
