Fromthe past behaviour that I observed from my FTO, it is evident that hehas been engaging in extramarital affairs. By engaging in adultery,the FTO has violated the marital laws. Adultery is the consentedsexual relationship with other people who are not legally orreligiously committed to a married person (Figley,2012).The legal definition of adultery varies across nations and statutes.In the past, many societies treated adultery as a crime and in somecases it was punishable by death. However, the modern societies havetended to be lenient to the offence of adultery and it has beendecriminalized across many nations (Hay,2011).
Inthe police departments, there are elements of proof of the commitmentof adultery. A person is considered to be adulterous if he wasmarried, and he had an extramarital affair which threatened goodorder and discipline while on duty (Kashyap,2012).The affair by my FTO is likely to be detrimental to our performanceas he wastes on duty time on irrelevant activities. In case hisaffair is uncovered, it will lead to the loss of our posts due tolack of discipline at work. I will not survive these correctivemeasures as it would seem I had taken part in enhancing thismisconduct.
Concealingthis type of behaviour may have short term benefits for me but in thelong run, it would cost me my career. The first initiative I would dois talk to my FTO of the risk that is caused by his behaviour. Tomake my position clear, I would refuse to accept any favours heoffers me. If at all he does not adjust his behaviour, then I wouldhave to file a complaint to the relevant bodies so that proper actioncan be taken.
