Beschreibungen

<P>How can we enhance police integrity? After surveying more than 3,000 police officers on how they would respond, the authors went on to study three police agencies which scored highly. The authors conclude that effective administration focuses on organizational rulemaking; detecting, investigating and disciplining rule violations; circumscribing the "code of silence" that prohibits police from reporting the misconduct of their colleagues; and understanding the influence of public expectations and agency history.</P>
<P>How can we enhance police integrity? The authors surveyed over 3000 police officers from 30 U.S. police departments on how they would respond to typical scenarios where integrity is challenged. They studied three police agencies which scored highly on the integrity scale: Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; and St. Petersburg, Florida. </P>
<P>The authors conclude that enhancing police integrity goes well beyond culling out "bad apple" police officers. Police administrators should focus on four aspects: organizational rulemaking; detecting, investigating and disciplining rule violations; circumscribing the informal "code of silence" that prohibits police from reporting the misconduct of their colleagues; and understanding the influence of public expectations and agency history.</P>

<P>This book identifies processes and mechanisms related to police integrity and its enhancement. The authors surveyed over 3,000 police officers from 30 U.S. police departments on how they would respond to typical scenarios where integrity is challenged. The authors conclude that enhancing police integrity goes well beyond culling out "a few bad apples." The book reveals insights into police subcultures and police management, incorporates theoretical arguments and practical examples, and even provides templates that can be used by any police force. It details four aspects upon which Police administrators should focus: organizational rulemaking; detecting, investigating and disciplining rule violations; circumscribing the informal "code of silence" that prohibits police from reporting the misconduct of their colleagues; and understanding the influence of public expectations and agency history.</P>
