Professional Ethics in Criminal Justice: Being Ethical When No One is Looking is designed for the Ethics in Criminal Justice course.


Every major issue, problem, scandal, and crime in the criminal justice field has ethics at its core. Professional Ethics in Criminal Justice: Being Ethical When No One is Looking presents the three major ethical schools of thought (virtue, formalism, and utilitarianism) in a clear way that emphasizes how ethics impacts individual decision-making. Extensive Critical-thinking exercises, Ethics in the Movies features, and Ethics in Books features use current events and media to raise ethical questions and help readers develop ethical-reasoning skills. Separate chapters are devoted to law, police, courts, corrections, and liability so learners see the direct connection between ethics and specific aspects of the criminal justice system. Professional Ethics in Criminal Justice helps readers recognize ethical decisions and provides the framework for analyzing ethical dilemmas.
