CJ 400 Professional Ethics in Criminal Justice (3)
This course is an exploration of professionalism and decision-making in criminal justice through the lens of ethics, professional codes of conduct, and leadership in organizations. Through the use of case studies, students develop an awareness and understanding of ethical dilemmas faced in the police service, the judiciary, and the correctional system and the checks and balances established to preserve the integrity of the criminal justice system. With this foundation, the students will examine their own decision making process and apply this to current problems and issues facing criminal justice professionals.
