Professional Ethics in Criminal Justice provides a framework for analyzing ethical dilemmas in criminal justice, including policing, courts and corrections.
To show how ethical decisions are made, author Jay Albanese examines three ethical schools of thought (virtue, formalism and utilitarianism) and how each is applied, with emphasis on their strengths and limitations. He draws on current events and media to raise ethical questions and to give you practice with ethical thinking.
The 5th Edition offers 20 new thought-provoking exercises, plus new current events, posing a range of new ethical scenarios for you to assess. With this expansion, you'll have ample opportunity to develop your ethical-reasoning skills.
