The subject of ethics in criminal justice has become more important over the last decade as increasing concern about the accountability of law enforcement and public authorities has prompted ethical questions regarding the actions of those who exercise power over citizens. Criminal Justice Ethics: Theory and Practice provides an overview of the expected standards of behavior and ethical issues that confront those in the various fields of criminal justice.

This book takes a sociological approach to criminal justice ethics by emphasizing the social and historical aspects of ethical inquiry. Author Cyndi Banks presents a unique discussion of ethical issues by exploring moral dilemmas faced by professionals in the criminal justice system before examining the major theoretical foundations of ethics. This distinct organization of Criminal Justice Ethics allows readers to understand real-life ethical issues before grappling with philosophical approaches to the resolution of those issues.

Key Features

Covers the interaction of ethics and the criminal justice system in Part I to lay a practical foundation for applying theoretical methods to the resolution of ethical dilemmas and issues
