Ethical and human rights issues have assumed an increasingly high profile in the wake of miscarriages of justice, racism (Lawrence Inquiry), incompetence and corruption - in both Britain and overseas. At the same time the implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998 in England and Wales will have a major impact on policing, challenging many of the assumptions about how policing is carried out.;This book aims to provide an accessible introduction to the key issues surrounding ethics in policing, links this to recent developments and new human rights legislation. It sets out a powerful case for a modern ""ethical policing"" approach.;""Policing, Ethics and Human Rights"" argues that securing and protecting human rights should be a major, if not the major, rationale for public policing.
