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 qcode of silenceq that prohibits police from reporting the misconduct of their colleagues; and understanding the influence of public expectations and agency history.The authors conclude that enhancing police integrity goes well beyond culling out aquot;bad appleaquot; police officers.
