Bestselling author Cyndi Banks draws readers into a unique discussion of ethical issues by exploring moral dilemmas faced
by professionals in the criminal justice system before examining the major theoretical foundations of ethics. This distinct
and unique organization allows students to understand real-life ethical issues before grappling with philosophical approaches
to the resolution of these issues.
The Fifth Edition includes updated discussions around ethical issues
in policing, corrections, the changing technological environment and its influence on courtrooms, and mass imprisonment and
the ethical implications of current policies.
