Using the eleven clauses of a statement of principles currently under consideration by the police service, this study discusses how members of the police service are thinking about what they actually do. The language in which these principles are phrased is examined as well as the relevance of these statements to the contemporary issues. This book introduces some of the vocabulary of philosophical ethics and discusses these ideas in relation to today's police service. The book also includes short case studies taken from the daily press with a few questions that use some of the vocabulary of ethical thinking.
