Police Corruption: A Perspective on Its Nature and Control

Publication Date

January 1975


Herman Goldstein


This monograph is addressed to the present and future leadership of the police field. It examines police corruption, one of the most perplexing problems that police administrators confront. Its intent is to help these administrators understand the numerous aspects of the problem and, more importantly, to elicit their involvement in developing more effective ways in which to deal with it. This is not intended to be a blueprint or manual for combating corruption, and there are more questions raised here than resolved. Where conclusions are offered, they should be regarded as working hypotheses, to be proved or disproved by future experience and research.
