Police Ethics and Catholic Christianity explores, from a Catholic Christian perspective, the ethical issues within policing of lying, discreet language, perjury, oath-taking, noble-cause corruption, police loyalty, cooperating in the wrongdoing/evil of others, conscience and the role of virtues within policing. This book has been granted the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur by the Catholic Church. / Paul Dixon brings occupational experience and substantial Catholic theological insight to bear . . . especially as it relates to issues of truth-telling and deception . . . Scholars of police ethics will  find a rich resource (John Kleinig, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York). / It is really important that the debate on police ethics is supported by academic thought and doctrine and this book does exactly that (Paul Netherton, President of the Christian Police Association (CPA) UK, and Deputy Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall Police). / This book does the business. It is addressed to police men and women on the ground; it offers clear explanations of essential elements of Christian belief and practice . . . (Dr Susan Frank Parsons, Editor of Studies in Christian Ethics). / I am pleased to endorse this book . . . It will enable all our police officers . . . to make more informed decisions and actions on some very difficult moral problems now facing them on a day to day basis (Rev. Barry J. Lomax. National Chaplain to the Catholic Police Guild of England and Wales). / Paul Dixon brings to this book his experience as policeman as well as his theological expertise, to produce a thorough and thoughtful account of police ethics viewed from a standpoint within Catholic faith, written in an accessible idiom. . . . A fine piece of work (Patrick Hannon, Emeritus Professor of Moral Theology, Maynooth College, Ireland).
