POLICE ETHICS, 2nd Edition picks up where traditional police training leaves off by illustrating the importance of and techniques for employing ethics in law enforcement. Ethical clarity is especially critical for the police professional – perhaps uniquely so – because the ethical point of view determines the way "police competence" is understood. In addition to the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics, the book promotes an "ethic to live by" for officers and other professionals, and applies various schools of ethical thought to practical examples in policing. The authors avoid dictating rules and labeling behaviors as inherently good or bad, instead providing the tools necessary for making intelligent, impartial decisions from a positive perspective. Expanded to include philosophical background, practical applications, and more examples of ethics in action, POLICE ETHICS, 2nd Edition is an ideal resource for students and professionals alike.

Perez teaches courses in criminal justice, focusing on the police, law and society, the drug war, and introductory courses. After serving as both a police and correctional officer, he began teaching at the college level on a dozen campuses around the nation. In addition to consulting for numerous police departments and the federal government, he has published Common Sense About Police Review and Police Ethics: A Matter of Character (with J. Alan Moore).
