In this weekâ€™s discussion, we are to answer the following:
- What specific facts are you required to know, share, and defend in your field?
- What sources do you consider most credible when you defend facts and statements to someone who is questioning you about the accuracy of your claims?
When it comes to defending myself while dealing with someone who is questioning my authority or why I am doing something that I am doing it is helpful to be able to cite specific Colorado law in order to defend myself. The same goes with defending myself with my office’s policies and procedures because there are often times that the answer can be found by pulling up a specific policy where it states word for word on how the process of something works. Another credible source in law enforcement is also field training experience because commonly in law enforcement people will ask to speak to my supervisor (mainly as a way of verifying something that I had already told them) and when the answer is the same from my Sergeant then the disagreement often ends there. “
