About the Book

This text provides a balance between the philosophical material necessary to analyze ethical dilemmas and a discussion of research and current events relevant to ethics in the criminial justice field. While balancing philosophical background and current issues, Ethical Dilemmas and Decisions in Criminal Justice remains a highly applied text in that the major focus is on how individuals perceive and resolve ethical dilemmas. The book is designed to be used in undergraduate criminal justice ethics courses; however, it would not be inappropriate for a graduate level course as well. It has also been used in law enforcement training academies. - Preface.
