Encyclopedia of Criminal Justice Ethics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Encyclopedia of Criminal Justice Ethics free pdf Federal, state, county, and municipal police forces all have their own codes of conduct, yet the ethics of being a police officer remain perplexing and are often difficult to apply in dynamic situations. The police misconduct statistics are staggering and indicate that excessive use of force comprises almost a quarter of misconduct cases, with sexual harassment, fraud/theft, and false arrest being the next most prevalent factors. The ethical issues and dilemmas in criminal justice also reach deep into the legal professions, the structure and administration of justice in society, and the personal characteristics of those in the criminal justice professions. The Encyclopedia of Criminal Justice Ethics includes A to Z entries by experts in the field that explore the scope of ethical decision making and behaviors within the spheres of criminal justice systems, including policing, corrections, courts, forensic science, and policy analysis and research. This two-volume set is available in both print and electronic formats. Features: * Entries are authored and signed by experts in the field and conclude with references and further readings, as well as cross references to related entries that guide readers to the next steps in their research journeys. * A Reader's Guide groups related entries by broad topic areas and themes, making it easy for readers to quickly identify related entries. * A Chronology highlights the development of the field and places material into historical context- a Glossary defines key terms from the fields of law and ethics- and a Resource Guide provides lists of classic books, academic journals, websites and associations focused on criminal justice ethics. * Reports and statistics from such sources as the FBI, the United Nations, and the International Criminal Court are included in an appendix. * In the electronic version, the Reader's Guide, index, and cross references combine to provide effective search-and-browse capabilities. The Encyclopedia of Criminal Justice Ethics provides a general, non-technical yet comprehensive resource for students who wish to understand the complexities of criminal justice ethics.
