The Bismarck Police Department has a responsibility to the community it serves and to
its employees to seek out and discipline those employees whose conduct discredits the Department or impairs its effective operation and community commitment goals.
Discipline has, as its immediate purpose, the channeling of individual effort into effective and productive action. It may involve encouragement, inspiration, training or the imposition of negative sanctions. Negative sanctions administered may range from a morning, where the immediate effect is on the individual, to termination, where the positive result is reassurance to other employees of the limitations placed upon unacceptable conduct.
