This book is the most systematic, comprehensive and philosophically sophisticated discussion of police ethics yet published. It offers an in-depth analysis of the ethical values that police, as servants of the community, should uphold as they go about their task. The book considers the foundations and purpose of police authority in broad terms but also tackles specific problems such as accountability, the use of force, deceptive stratagems used to gain information or trap the criminally intentioned, corruption, and the tension between personal values and communal concerns.

Ethics of Policing

 on July 31, 2010
By cpdcaptain
Ordered the “new” book for sharply discounted price and was pleasantly surprised it was NEW. Tough read the first few chapters but improves as you go. Seems to have a British tone

WELL WRITTEN AND EXTREMELY PHILISOPHICAL

THIS BOOK COVERS ALL THE GRAY AREAS OF POLICING. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMENDED FOR ANYONE WHO IS A MEMBER OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY BECAUSE IT APPLIES SPECIFICALLY TO MEMBERS OF PATROL AND THOSE INVOLVED IN UNDERCOVER OPERATIONS.
