Dear Student,
Hello and thank you for using BrainMass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular problem you are being asked to provide an idea of why professional ethics is important for criminal justice professionals. There are many ways to answer this question and there are alot of resources you can use that are online. For this discussion though, since I expect that your professor is going to want you to forward a small 'essay' on the matter, I suggest this outline -

1. Professional ethics - what is it about? 75 words.
2. Criminal Justice professionals - what do they do and why do they need to practice professional ethics? 75 words.
3. Why is ethics important in criminal justice? 100 words.
4. On ethics, policing and purpose of criminal punishments - 100 words.

This outline should cover what you need and will yield a 1-page paper on the topic at 350 words. But, should you need further help, do click on this link -

http://books.google.de/books/about/Criminal_Justice_Ethics.html?id=kwOHPCNaInoC&redir_esc=y

It will take you to the digital 'free version' of the book 'Criminal Justice' (2004) by Cyndi Banks, an important criminal ethics work. Good luck with your studies.

Sincerely,
