Offers a different type of book on police ethics, focusing on corruption committed in the name of good ends. Addresses ethical issues of accountability, explains ways in which noble cause is subverted, presents noble-cause corruption as a form of what ethicists call a means-end dilemma, and considers ethical dilemmas facing police in the 21st century. Can be used as a supplemental text with students of policing, and as an exercise for officers.
