 Foreword
Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s discussion of the Police Service and policing inthe United Kingdom was punctuated with examples of malpractice andmisconduct. Twenty years on, several high profile scandals involving officers at allranks of the police service in a number of forces, have again placed the policese rvice, and discussion of police corruption in parti cu lar, under the official and public spotlight.The Police Service has taken an active and leading role in tackling policecorruption and in putting in place strategies to detect, investigate and eliminatecorruption within its ranks. The Association of Chief Police Officers Taskforce onCorruption, established in September 1998, has taken the lead at a national level;individual forces, most notably the Metropolitan Police Service are putting in placepreventive strategies more robust than those previously introduced in the UnitedKingdom; and, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has completed aThematic Inspection on Integrity within the Police Service.This publication contributes to the debate by providing a review of the publishedEnglish language literature on corruption. By its very nature a literature review ishistorical. It is hoped that in identifying key lessons drawn from the experiences of police organisations in various jurisdictions, this report will inform the verysubstantial work now underway in the Police Service.The study should prove a useful addition to our knowledge in this sensitive area.
