Police corruption is unquestionably one of the worst forms of corruption, as it can become a serious security issue and undermine a state's legitimacy. This single volume brings together the most informative scholarly and practitioner contributions on the subject in recent decades. It covers major aspects of police corruption, including its significance and impact, public perceptions, the causes of corruption and the problem of police culture. It details the situation in selected countries, and explores how and with what success they have addressed the problem. The book will be valuable to students of criminology and political science as well as practitioners and policymakers. While the general reader will also find much in this collection that is simultaneously fascinating and disturbing. In his insightful and thought-provoking introduction, Professor Holmes highlights the richness of the subject and current research. However, much is still contested and much remains to be done in this topical and crucial area.
