9781439895986: Police Integrity Management in Australia: Global Lessons for Combating Police Misconduct (Advances in Police Theory and Practice)

In the past two decades, Australia has been the site of major police misconduct scandals and inquiries, leading to reform initiatives at the cutting edge of police integrity management practices. Presenting interviews with key informants and an analysis of key documents, Police Integrity Management in Australia: Global Lessons for Combating Police Misconduct offers a comprehensive study, conducted from 2008 to 2010, of strategies and systems in Australia.

Providing a rare overview and critique of a full suite of policies, institutions, and programs adopted to combat misconduct in policing, this volume:

  • Outlines the global problem of police misconduct and its effects
  • Summarizes current knowledge about best practices in the field, the reality of corruption in Australia, and the reform agenda that has driven major change and experimentation
  • Presents current integrity strategies in place in Australia, covering the rationales, evidence of effectiveness, and difficulties
  • Explores undercover stings, drug and alcohol testing, mediation of complaints, ethics training, and regulating the police use of force

Organized logically for ease of navigation, each chapter contains an "Emerging Issues" section, highlighting some of the more promising and/or innovative integrity strategies as well as looming concerns and ethical issues.

The book concludes with an overall evaluation of the data presented in the body of the book, assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the Australian system and the implications for adoption of these strategies in other police departments around the world.

Her research interests center on interpersonal processes, specifically leadership and peer influence in forensic contexts. Dr. Porter has explored social and organizational features of group crime and, most recently, police corruption and misconduct. Her work on police misconduct has focused on types of misconduct behavior, its causes, and the systems in place to address such behavior. She is also interested in police–citizen interactions, police use of force, and police-related deaths.

Tim Prenzler is a Chief Investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS) and a Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Griffith University, Brisbane.

In 1991, he was a foundation member of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, where he developed and taught courses in situational crime prevention, security management, criminal justice ethics, social justice, and police studies. In addition to integrity research, his current work includes studies on police and security officer safety, security industry regulation, reducing welfare fraud, and improving the integration of women police.
