  • I need some opinions

    What would you do or how would you handle the situation?

    A civilian secretary, who takes excellent care of you and always ways watches out for all officers (she is like a mother to all.) Secretary gets arrested for misd shoplifting. You haven't heard anything around the office and not sure if the supervisors know or not. Secretary is 3 years from retirement.

    My question to all is: do you confront the secretary and ask about it? or talk to one of the supervisors in private and let them know what you have found out?
    Happy Huntin!!!!!!!!

      If you are not her supervisor you have no reason to confront her. Is the arrest cause for termination of a non-sworn person at your dept.? How did you find out?

        Sometimes these things take time to pop up..they need to run her fingerprints which should be on file w/ the FBI'ees. They might know and are dealing wih it on the down low...either way getting involved wil blow up in ur face..

            If she looked out for you, return the favour.

                I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                  +1! (Add: Maybe management already knows. Why tell them it's common knowledge and place them in a situation where they take more action than originally planned?)

                    Let her break the news, if they find out later and she didn't tell, might be her butt, why ask for chaos in your life?

                        There is no reason she should be shoplifting. That isn't a mistake offense. She would have had to knowingly taken something that did not belong to her. I'd make sure the supervisors knew about it. If they already did, great, my work is done. If they didn't, refer them to the involved agency and great, my work is done.

                          And why??? What happened in her personal life is none of your business to begin with.

                            Our dept has hiring agreements where if you are arrested for a misdemeanor or felony, you have to report it to management. I believe this applies with the civilians also, even though they are in a different union.

                            Let her disclose it. How are you sure she hasn't already?

                              It sounds like you heard a rumor of a charge. Nothing about a conviction yet. At this point, the department may know and be awaiting the result of trial / hearing.

                              I'ld stay clear of it altogether if it were me at this stage.

                              If I later found out she was convicted (it would be a public record) and seeing as she may handle sensative investigative reports, etc ... only then might I mention it in passing to a supervisor.
