Although considered the "gatekeepers" of our society and expected to meet or exceed high moral standards, today's police officer is only human and is prone to error. Often these errors are viewed as misconduct. Policing and Misconduct takes a closer look at the phenomenon of police misconduct through the exploration of several facets.
In Policing and Misconduct, Dr. Kim Lersch and other authors examine police misconduct beginning with a look at what is ethical behavior, a historical review through possible warning systems for police management. Furthermore, this book does something that is rare, it offers an examination of misconduct among women police officers.
Policing and Misconduct is an edited work that provides a variety of perspectives and views into differing aspects of police misconduct. Unlike solo authored texts, this book offers the views and insights of several writers who have many years of police and research experience in police misconduct. In light of media heavy incidents as Louima and Diallo, this book is very timely and gives students and practitioners much food for thought.About the Author:
