Description: The general concern in this book is with police corruption and the methods used to combat it. The principal institutional arrangement for preventing, combating and reducing corruption is a so-called integrity system (Alexandra and Miller 2010). Integrity systems can be contrasted with regulatory frameworks. A regulatory framework is a structured set of explicit laws, rules or, regulations governing behaviour, issued by some institutional authority and backed by sanctions. It may serve to ensure compliance with minimum ethical standards (namely those embodied in a law, rule or regulation), but this is only one of its purposes. There are numerous laws, rules and regulations that have little or nothing to do with ethics. An integrity system, by contrast, is an assemblage of institutional entities, mechanisms and procedures, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance with minimum ethical standards—notably requirements not to engage in corrupt activity— and to promote the pursuit of ethical ideals. So integrity systems have a regulatory component, but they involve more than this.
