Cohen and Feldberg use a moral perspective grounded in the social contract to define the responsibilities assumed by the police when they accept the authority to govern. Part I develops a system of ethical standards by which to measure responsible police behavior: fair access, public trust, safety and security, teamwork, and objectivity. In Part II, the book applies these standards to several familiar yet challenging cases encountered daily in municipal patrol work, illustrating how police officers can develop appropriate moral responses to complex and difficult circumstances.

This book provides a highly readable and up to date introduction to the work of the police, exploring what this currently involved and the directions it may be going in.

The book describes all the key elements of policing work. The first two parts look at how the police functions as an organization, with chapters devoted to important new areas of crime reduction partnerships and forensic support in investigation and enforcement. The third section covers key aspects of practical police work, with coverage of such challenging areas as anti-social behaviour and terrorism. The book contains a wide range of practical tasks and activities, and links are made throughout to the new Initial Police Learning and Development Programme and National Occupational Standards in Policing.
