Commanding Internal Affairs and Public Integrity Investigations

Hours: 4
Tuition: $75

Program Information:

In 1961 President John F. Kennedy said when addressing proposed legislation on ethical standards, “...No responsibility of government is more fundamental than the responsibility of maintaining the highest standards of ethical behavior by those who conduct the public business.  There can be no dissent from the principle that all officials must act with unwavering integrity, absolute impartiality and complete devotion to the public interest.  This principle must be followed not only in reality but in appearance.  For the basis of effective government is public confidence, and that confidence is endangered when ethical standards falter or appear to falter…”

This one-day, 4-hour program has been developed to provide a background for public sector officials to avoid the pitfalls of allegations of unethical conduct.  It is also intended to instill awareness and potential solutions for leadership that ethical challenges can be addressed and resolved in an appropriate fashion.
