Corruption risks in the criminal justice chain and tools for assessment. Chapter 2: Investigation

Abstract

This chapter summarizes the common types of risks for police corruption, and discusses three kinds of risk assessment tools for application in the field:

  1. Citizen experiences with police corruption. The International Crime Victims Survey offers an established measure of this over time in many locations, both cities and countries, that could be expanded.

  2. Police officer attitudes toward misconduct. The Police Integrity Survey has been used in various countries and could be applied even more widely.

  3. Toolboxes to evaluate operations and integrity for jurisdictions seeking to assess their entire police service. The South African Police Service and UNODC have published detailed guides to assist in this process.
