CRM 006 - (IS) Ethics in Policing

Semester Hours: 3
Ethical dilemmas confronting criminal justice academics, practictioners, and policy makers are far reaching and prevalent in the United States’ criminal justice system. This course develops the ethical decision-making skills that are essential in the field of criminal justice across all three elements of the criminal justice system: the police, the courts, and corrections. Here we borrow from the philosophical principles and theories that are the foundation of ethical decision-making in collaboration with the latest challenges and issues in criminal justice. These topics include the ”militarization” of the police, mass imprisonment, wrongful convictions, the ”misuse” of power by public servants, to name a few of the salient topics that this course will cover. If your career path intentions are in the field of policing, courts, or corrections, or hold an interest in the field of criminal justice this course delivers the information and tools you need to comprehend and deal effectively with these ethical challenges.This course allows students with the unique opportunity to analyze how they would resolve ethical challenges in the criminal justice system according to their own values and beliefs while staying within the confines of the law and professional codes of ethics.
