This subject deals with the ethical dimension of the role of police prosecutor. Students are introduced to a range of ethical theories and perspectives. This theory is then deployed in the interpretation and analysis of a number of central ethical issues confronted by police prosecutors. These include: the rights of victims; factors relevant to the decision to charge; corruption; evidence, truth and fabrication; the rights of suspects (privacy, non self-incrimination); honesty and deception in the courtroom; punishment and its rationale.
