Police Ethics and Deviance 2 The definition of ethics is the practical, normative study of the rightness and wrongness of human conducts (Policing, 2005). In my own words, ethics means doing the right thing while having society’s well-being, individual rights and safety in mind. Ethics play a big role in today’s policing world. Many law enforcement agencies and departments are supporting and requiring training programs in ethics. The departments that have already begun this training have noticed a difference in each individual officer as well as help their department reach its full capability (Policing, 2005). Every person has ethics towards their family, friends and society. If these people are appointed to be police officers, they should apply those same positive standards/ethics to society.
