Revised to encompass the law and order professions in a much more comprehensive manner, the fourth edition of Ethical Reasoning in Criminal Justice and Public Safety offers a rigorous exploration of the principles of ethical reasoning and their application to ethical concerns both in Canadian society and in the areas of policing, corrections, security and investigation, and law.

Part I, Principles of Ethical Reasoning, examines the importance of critical thinking in ethics; approaches to ethical decision-making; and professional codes of ethics. It also introduces the Framework for Ethical Decision-Making, a key component of the text through which students practise making decisions similar to those they will be called on to make in their careers. Part II, Applications of Ethical Reasoning, looks at ethical issues in Canadian society generally, and in policing, corrections, and security specifically; reviews what is expected of public safety officers in their professional and personal lives; and concludes with a discussion of ethics in the legal profession and the judiciary.

  • Encourages self-reflection and an understanding of how personal morals may conflict with professional obligations
  • Provides a framework for identifying situations where professional ethical dilemmas exist and determining how best to respond
  • Analyzes codes of ethics in a range of professions, and their application to ethical concerns
  • Examines current issues such as corruption, the exercise of authority, professional discretion, and use of force
  • Clearly explains obligations in areas including professional relationships with colleagues, relationships with members of the public, and private life
  • Application of ethical reasoning to contemporary issues of euthanasia, safe injection sites, and terrorism
  • End-of-chapter exercises allow students to apply their understanding to real-life scenarios
  • Chapter summaries allow for a quick review of the material and serve as a useful study aid
  • Comprehensive glossary of key terms
