BERNAL BALLESTEROS, María José. The Police Function from the Perspective of Human Rights and Public Ethics. Rev. IUS [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.44, pp.251-280.  Epub 01-Jul-2019. ISSN 1870-2147.

The high rates of insecurity and violence currently registered by different Countries in Latin America, as well as the abuse of public forces and the constant violations of Human Rights, make it necessary to rethink the Police Function with a perspective based on Human Rights and a new conception of Public Ethics. This work is based on the theory of Human Rights; From this perspective, Police Function is addressed, and the way in which it carries out this Public Function is also analyzed and whether or not it adheres to the Constitution and Conventional Principles of the subject matter. In counter balance, Public Ethics is addressed as a possible solution. Strengthening the preventive aspect is essential because the objective is to prevent violations of Human Rights from being committed in the exercise of the Police Function, beyond the instruments of reaction and restitution that are available.
