Task 5: "Explore the possible effects of lack of self discipline in the given public service" Consequences of lack of self discipline: Here I am going to look at the police service and investigate how members of this service could bring the force to disrepute by not having sufficient self discipline and behaving in an inadequate way. Such behaviours could have terrible consequences. I shall be talking about the following consequences: ? Consequences involving members of the public ? Consequences affecting members of that public service ? Consequences involving the force Consequences involving members of the public: Members of the police force behaving inappropriately can lead to a member of the public suffering negative consequences. I shall now give an example of a situation in which this can occur. A police officer doesn't carry out all the checks necessary after a violent burglary has taken place, this results in not collecting enough evidence to find the suspect. And therefore the case is left unsolved. Later on there is another burglary which takes places in the area by the same original burglar. In this case the home owner sustains serious injuries. This has affected members of the public because another burglary has taken place, which could have been avoided same as the injuries the second victim sustained. ...read more.


Self discipline: It is important that a good level of self discipline is maintained. This involves behaving in the most appropriate way. Self discipline is formed by a number of qualities which are personal presentation, punctuality, time management, reliability, attendance, composure attitude, performance and personality. I shall now give an outline of what is meant by each of these: Personal presentation: people make assumptions about us judging us by the way we look. This is simply because they will notice out appearance within seconds of seeing us much, much before they get to learn about us. In many cases people you will encounter will never get to know much about you at all. This is why it is important to present yourself in an adequate way. This becomes even more important when you are working within the public services, where it is important to have the respect of society. Punctuality: it is vital to be punctual for a variety of reasons. You are to get places in time because in many occasions people will not wait for you to arrive. If you are late to catch the train you will suffer the consequences because you will not be waited for. ...read more.


This is the reason why it is important to do your best not just settle for what is enough. Personality: our personality is what makes us different to others. In the public services even though you would be wearing the same uniform as your fellow colleagues your personality is what will make you different and be seen as an individual in the eyes of society, because of this your personality needs to be as adequate as possible.
