Description: Based on the author's two decades of experience, this textbook addresses ethical issues for law enforcement and correctional personnel. Each chapter introduces key concepts and definitions, presents a case scenario, and concludes with review questions. Action boxes are also included in every chapter to provide additional case studies and readings on criminology. Written in an easy-to-understand format, the text encourages students to develop new insights by considering such topics as abuse of authority as well as prejudice and discrimination in the criminal justice system.
