Summary

The article sees the critical importance of leadership ethics and moral leadership in the police force in establishing legitimacy. It is fundamental for cooperation within the police, but also for cooperation between the police and society. Moral leadership can only work successfully if it is pursued as an end in itself. This results in special virtue ethical and organizational ethical challenges that are considered individually and in their interaction as well as in their effects. As a crucial point it is shown that moral leadership does not depend on a special ethic, nor on an extraordinary morality of the leader (s). Rather, it is a performance value and thus to be understood as a competence which, for the sake of its effectiveness, is constitutively dependent on the interplay of communicative, cooperative and moral abilities.
