9780844772240: Character and Cops: Ethics in Policing

Since the first edition was published in 1989, Character and Cops has been considered the bible of police ethics training. The book is a comprehensive guide to the ethical challenges faced daily by police officers, especially in times of heightened security. The updated sixth edition features a new foreword by David Bores, a retired lieutenant colonel in the United States military police, and a new chapter titled "From War Veterans to Peace Officers," which explores policies for incorporating soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan into the domestic police force.

About the Author:

Edwin J. Delattre is professor of philosophy and education emeritus at Boston University, president emeritus of St. John's College, and an adjunct scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He lives in Canton, GA.

Review:

Dr. Delattre's book is the gold standard text on police integrity and ethics. Both applicants and seasoned veterans alike should read and apply the many lessons in this book. Rookies will gain wisdom on good decision making that no police academy teaches. Experienced officers will find affirmation for their noblest service. (Richard W. Myers, Chief of Police, Colorado Springs, CO)

Police work is among the most challenging of careers and it is best done by those with strong character. For more than twenty years, Ed Delattre has been teaching police officers at every level about the complexities of ethical policing and providing clear guidance to strengthen their character. Each edition of Character and Cops builds on a rock-solid foundation of wisdom while recognizing the constantly changing world in which we police. In the sixth edition, he takes on the vexing issue of officers returning from deployments in war zones. His contributions to help those who police America cannot be overstated. (Darrel W. Stephens, Executive Director, Major Cities Chiefs Police Association)

This fascinating volume, a sophisticated exercise in applied political philosophy, illuminates the complexity of policing and the central role of that profession in a free society (George Will, winner of the Pulitzer Prize)

Policing in the twenty-first century requires more than ever the utmost trust of the citizens law enforcement serves. Delattre’s emphasis on the virtues of character, integrity, and honesty coupled with compassion and equal justice for all makes this book required reading for police supervisors at all levels. (James W. McMahon, former superintendent, New York State Police)

Thankfully, someone who possesses both the intellect and proper value structure has chosen to study this issue. Police administrators throughout the United States are deeply indebted to Ed Delattre. (Thomas A. Constantine, former administrator, Drug Enforcement Administration)

Delattre’s emphasis on the achievement of good character applies to every walk of public and private life. (Chuck Wexler, executive director, Police Executive Research Forum)
