This book is the most systematic, comprehensive and philosophically sophisticated discussion of police ethics yet published. It offers an in-depth analysis of the ethical values that police, as servants of the community, should uphold as they go about their task. The book considers the foundations and purpose of police authority in broad terms but also tackles specific problems such as accountability, the use of force, deceptive stratagems used to gain information or trap the criminally intentioned, corruption, and the tension between personal values and communal concerns. Offering the fullest, most rigorous and up-to-date treatment of police ethics currently available, this book will be a perfect textbook in courses on applied ethics in philosophy departments or police and criminal justice ethics in departments of criminology and law schools.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is very tightly argued and rich in provocative and imaginative arguments." Teaching Philosophy
"Kleinig's new survey of the ethics of policing is an excellent introduction to the subject. it provides a very useful survey of a variety of topics--presenting careful analyses, considering (but not getting booged down in) recent contributions of other scholars, and offering sensible solutions. It does exactly what a book of this kind should do in a way that is neither oversimplified nor too complex for the lay reader." Ethics
