“Criminal Justice Ethics is a well-written and thorough book. I also think it is topical and up-to-date.”
“Criminal Justice Ethics is an excellent text that provides the necessary tools for effective learning to the next generation of leaders.”
“Criminal Justice Ethics is the cleanest, clearest text on ethics for undergraduates in criminal justice. It is possible to deliver a complete undergrad ethical course using the text alone; chapter-by-chapter progress works nicely for students. Well-written, logical, and thoughtful, with solid web support for students.”
“A thorough and easy read that provides an overview of ethical dilemmas in the criminal justice system.”
good primer for ethical considerations in CJ system. Very well balanced on all "sides" of various CJ issues. Caveat: although 5th ed, seemingly a lot of the study/data cited is dated, leading to an "older view" of some issues and lack of prominent newer issues confronting the CJS. Still, a wonderful tool for provoking discussion and steering students toward problem solving activities
Met all of my desired needs
This book had current examples that my students could relate to. Also the practicality and application of ethical theories and principles were a selling point.
Ethics in law enforcement in this day and age is crucial. As a retired Police Chief, I found this text to be complete for my class. I would recommend this book to any ethics instructor.
