Although many police officers demonstrate ethical behavior and perform their work in an exemplary manner, some officers do engage in unprofessional conduct. Abuse of discretion and authority, use of excessive force, discriminatory practices, dishonesty, and unprofessional behavior are all examples of officer misconduct.
