Packed with current, real-world examples, ETHICAL DILEMMAS AND DECISIONS IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE offers comprehensive, balanced, and practical coverage of ethics across all three arms of the criminal justice system: the police, the courts, and corrections. Readers not only find coverage of the philosophical principles and theories that are the very foundation of ethical decision-making, but also the latest challenges and issues in criminal justice--the war on terror, privatization, community corrections, the death penalty, the effect of the economic slowdown on the CJ system, the misuse of power/discretion by elected officials and/or other public servants, and much more. In addition, real-life cases and situations demonstrate the significance of ethics in today's world of criminal justice for those studying or contemplating a career in criminal justice.
