Obedience, Conformity, & Compliance
Metropolis Police and Fire Department
Public conformity - a superficial change in overt behavior without a corresponding change of opinion that is produced by real or imagined group pressure
Obedience - behavior change produced by the commands of authority
Compliance - changes in behavior that are elicited by direct request
Guidelines for obedience in the department
If you are given an order you need to comply and obey and do it so people are safe and out of harms way
Just to fit in does not mean it's the right thing
You may chose to fit in or be you and stand out
Doing everything everyone else is doing may be fun but is it really you?
Guidelines for employees that experienced pressure to comply or obey
With that being said you need to make sure you have a clear mind from anything and make your own choice to obey or comply not let the person that is higher up then you take away your free will to be able to make decisions yourself and not listen to what they are telling you that you must do, it has to be your call for what is right and wrong. If you let someone else make those decisions for you then you don't really know what is right from wrong.
