Corruption in policing :: PS64-27/2006

causes and consequences - a review of the literature /

This paper examines the literature on police corruption with four purposes in mind. First, we want to explore and describe factors, which lead to, or contribute to, corruption within police departments. Second, we will examine the consequences of such corruption on several levels; individual, organizational, community and society. Third, we will attempt to provide an overview of what can be done, or what needs to be done, to prevent or reduce corruption in police services. Fourth, we will examine the consequences of not taking action to address the issue of corruption. Finally, we make a number of recommendations for future action.
