The objective of "Police Ethics: Crisis in Law Enforcement" is to provide law enforcement officers and supervisors with an understanding of ethical behavior as it relates to the police occupation. This book is based on the premise that an ethical crisis has always existed in law enforcement and is the result of the nature of the police occupation created by the Metropolitan Police Act of 1829. Additional topics discussed include the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics, corrupt practices, police misconduct and control of ethical violations. This book will serve as a guide for new officers and a refresher for experienced officers. The moral dangers of this occupation are discussed in detail and the reader will realize how important ethical standards are for police officers. From Charles C.
