Legislation vs. morality: a police officer’s ethical dilemma
Umeå universitet, Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, Pedagogiska institutionen.
2011 (engelsk)Inngår i: Police Practice & Research, ISSN 1561-4263, E-ISSN 1477-271X, s. 10-Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

Policing is a moral endeavor. This paper discusses policing as a complex mission linked to its moral dimension and how individual values may impact how daily work is accomplished. It highlights the ethical dimension of decision-making from different ethical perspectives and the importance of developing practical ethical awareness in routine tasks and everyday activities. A routine episode, as depicted by a female police officer in an in-service program, illustrates how a number of ethical dimensions may arise in an unexpected situation with a discrepancy between the national ethical values for policing and its realization in practice. This paper draws attention to the importance of a forum in which shared dilemmas drawn from everyday activities are discussed, focusing on legislation as well as different ethical perspectives, to identify alternative actions.
