Professional Ethics in Criminal Justice presents a well balanced survey of ethics presented through applications to the criminal justice system. 

 

The text introduces the reader to ethical decision making in the first chapter and then presents three major ethical perspectives: virtue, formalism, and utilitarianism. The text then moves to the social and criminal justice context, in which ethics is discussed in separate chapters as it relates to law, police, courts, corrections, and liability in general. The final chapter looks to the future development of ethics in everyday life.

  • Critical thinking exercises in every chapter report on real-life situations and ask students to apply ethical principles to actual cases.
  • “Ethical Checkup” exercises in each chapter help readers see underlying ethical content in criminal justice decisions and are excellent tools to keep the reader focused during the discussion of each chapter’s theme.
  • Ethical decision-making and criminal justice decision-making are integrated throughout the text in a systematic way, illustrating the fundamental connection between ethics and criminal justice.
  • Manageable length allows for flexible use by instructors who wish to devote time to class discussions, videos, exercises, and supplemental readings.
