Law Enforcement Ethics : Classic and Contemporary Issues

Law Enforcement Ethics : Classic and Contemporary Issues

Description

Law Enforcement Ethicsais an attempt to be at the forefront of engaging in the conversation about the future of law enforcement ethics, while examining many of the classic, enduring challenges posed by the profession itself. The conversation explores a host of foundational issues that include who should be hired as a law enforcement officer; what training should look like during the basic academy, as well as over the span of oneAEs career; common ethical challenges, such as force and interrogations; what an ethical promotional process should entail; international best practices and problems; psychology of marginality; role of the media in promoting accountability; and the roles played by social learning, sub-culture, organizational policies, and PTSD in misconduct. 1. Each of the bookAEs 18 chapters explores some major theoretical aspect of law enforcement ethics, while offering practical advice on what law enforcement agencies at the local, state, and federal level can do to create more ethical organizations.2. The contributing authors include not only academicians but clinical psychologists, professionals trainers, accreditation consultants, ethicists, medical professionals, and law enforcement supervisors and administrators representing a broad cross-section of agencies.3. Rather than relying on a single theoretical framework or discipline (e.g., sociology or criminology), the book takes an interdisciplinary look at the phenomenon of law enforcement ethics by offering contributions from authors in the fields of clinical psychology, medicine, criminology, criminal justice, law, ethics, organizational leadership, sociology, and public policy.4. Chapters begin with an opening vignetter or case study to help motivate the content to come.5. Chapters will conclude with summaries and 4-5 discussion questions.
