Decision Point: Real-Life Ethical Dilemmas in Law Enforcement

This book assists readers in understanding the real-life dilemmas law enforcement officers confront throughout their careers. The scenarios are riveting, and the discussion points force readers to consider the myriad options officers face in these dilemmas. One thing is certain as made clear by the decision points in every chapter—ethical decision-making is an extraordinarily difficult endeavor in the law enforcement profession. "Decision Point" focuses on the individual officer in the middle of each situation, while making it clear that the broader culture and traditions of the agency play a major role in helping the officer make the right decision. This text therefore provides value to a wide audience, including those in entry level through supervisory and management level training programs. On many levels, Jeff Green’s text is a major contribution to the policing profession.
