Special Agent Stanley B. Burke, Law Enforcement Ethics Unit, FBI Academy, Quantico, VA From the Back Cover Why did a law enforcement officer in a large metropolitan police department brutalize a suspect? Why did it take several days for his colleagues to admit witnessing the event? Such questions lead officers to ponder their moral duties and obligation, known generally as ethical considerations as they relate to the law enforcement profession. Some of the hardest decisions law enforcement officers make during their careers involve ethical issues. As a result, the actions taken to resolve these issues play a vital role in defining officers throughout their careers.
