This is a book of research and policy aimed at raising ethical standards in criminal justice practice. Around the world, corruption continues to undermine the rule of law and the application of due process rights. Misconduct by criminal justice professionals challenges democratic authority and the equality and freedom of ordinary citizens. There is an urgent need for academics, advocates and policymakers to speak with one voice in articulating universal ethical standards and, most importantly, in prescribing systems and techniques that must be in place for criminal justice to be genuinely accountable and as free from misconduct as possible. The focus of the book is on the core components of the criminal justice system - police, courts and corrections - and the core groups within this system: sworn police officers; judges, prosecutors and defence lawyers; and custodial and community correctional officers. By using quality research and policy analysis of these core components Professor Prenzler formulates a basic checklist that can be used to assess the ethical quality and accountability of the criminal justice system in any jurisdiction.

Industry Reviews

""Ethics and Accountability in Criminal Justice: Towards a Universal Standard is unique in the criminology literature in Australia. It addresses the urgent question of how to reduce misconduct, improve ethical practice and minimise miscarriages of justice across the criminal justice system. The book is well written and accessible to a wide range of readers. In addressing the central question it presents a series of instructive case studies, focusing in particular on demonstrated strategies for achieving best practice.""
-- Professor Jenny Fleming, Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies, University of Tasmania.
