Should police officers disclose their finances to their employers if they work drug detail ?

to ensure they don't take bribes from the busted drug dealers...

  • I think finances are very important for some jobs. My husband is subject to a recurring review for his security clearance...they want to know about me too. I was also subject to reviews when I was a Trust Officer in a bank.

    IMO, if you aren't comfortable disclosing your finances then perhaps you should look into a different job.

  • No, it's no ones business. The police dept. is already aware how much money the officer makes and annual income if married. Background check is done on family before they go to school to become an officer.

  • They already do with a background check.

  • Disclose it to whom?

  • no.... and I would be more worried aout them taking the drugs or the money on the drug dealers.... but they just wouldn't deposit the bribe money in their bank account so it wouldn't help to do that

  • Any employer can run a credit check on their employees that would pretty much give them all of their financial information. I do think it's appropriate, but I also think all of our politicians should have a credit check before they're allowed to take office.

  • nope ... the finances should NOT be any of anyone elses concerns. And the "war" on drugs is a joke, when a dealer with a dime bag goes to jail for 20 years and a child molester gets out after 2 years and moves at the end of your block...

  • Wouldn't the employer already know what they pay their own employees?

  • YES

  • They file tax returns. If they make $60K and live in a $2 million home which the spouse couldn't buy, you might know there is something fishy.
