Attention All Hands,
We are adding a new article to the Disciplinary Articles of the Unit Policy Manual:
10-7.11 Pattern of Misconduct
Any member that commits repeated violations of policies in which each violation by themselves only amount to minor disciplinary action; however, the violations together show a pattern of misconduct.
Simply put: There have been identified previous issues of individuals displaying regular conduct of detrimental activity which individually do not fall under any major violation or require heavy steps; however when put together they create a picture of a member who is simply here to disrupt the activities of others. In the past we have been forced to ignore this or simply file the issues under an umbrella of 'General Article'. This was insufficient. This new article should make it possible for the Unit and subordinate commands to take steps to protect their sections and the Unit as a whole more effectively.
