ACPO comment on HMIC police integrity report Without Fear of Favour

Leadership has always been an important part of tackling police corruption and the service has worked hard to identify threats and put preventive measures in place

ACPO lead on professional standards Chief Constable Mike Cunningham said:

“The police service is a highly accountable organisation which must be responsive and trusted by the public. With a dedicated team to investigate allegations of corruption in each force, we have one of the least corrupt police services in the world. This review bears out research from other bodies such as Transparency International who found no evidence of systemic corruption in policing, but individual cases where police officers let their colleagues and the public down.

“Leadership has always been an important part of tackling police corruption and the service has worked hard to identify threats and put preventive measures in place. All our relationships must meet the highest standards of integrity and this review highlights the need to continue develop safeguards and to keep pace with new developments in information technology which expand the potential for vulnerability to corruptors. Any officer, regardless of rank, that brings the service into disrepute does huge damage to the 140,000 officers that go out every day to deliver a police service with commitment and integrity.”
