Police Integrity Ruling

The arbiter in this case:

  1. Names five standards that must be met reviewing a misconduct case.
  2. Introduces a three-standards test “Consistency-Times-Three” and relevant demeanor that he used to assess employers’ and employees’ testimonies.
  3. Explains what management must do to support issuing different levels of discipline when unions claim disparate treatment between employees.
  4. Evaluates the value of past performance evaluations on current acts of misconduct.
  5. Explains and uses the McCoy doctrine as a bar on his authority to alter an employer’s penalty decisions.

NOTE: The Discipline Penalty Assessment Program that is available to members is based on the McCoy doctrine.
