My husband has been a police officer for the past 16 years. About nine years in his career, he made an error in judgment and was asked to resign from that department in lieu of termination. He was hired three months later with another police department. The file of the incident has been removed from his file of the former employer. Yet my husband still feels it is necessary to say the reason for leaving that department was resignation in lieu of termination. Law enforcement hiring is very difficult and his acknowledgement of truth has lost him job opportunities. Couldn’t he, at this point, simply say he resigned and then if asked, verbally address it? Your input or direction is appreciated.
