Overview

In the Third Edition of Criminal Justice Ethics, author Cyndi Banks once again examines the criminal justice system through an ethical lens identifying ethical issues in practice and in theory, exploring ethical dilemmas, and proposing means through which criminal justice professionals might resolve ethical issues and dilemmas. The text adopts a critical perspective in the sense that the constituent parts of the criminal justice system are scrutinized within a framework where questions are raised about moral and ethical conduct and standards. Readers are drawn into a unique discussion of ethical issues by exploring moral dilemmas faced by professionals in the criminal justice system first, then presented with an examination of the major theoretical foundations of ethics. This distinct organization allows readers to understand real life ethical issues before grappling with philosophical approaches to the resolution of those issues.
