Corruption within government is a worldwide problem. This volume presents insight from police practitioners and scholars on the nature and extent of this epidemic in both more and less developed countries in all regions of the globe. Editors Rick Sarre, Dilip K. Das, and H. J. Albrecht and the notable contributors shed light on the conditions under which corruption flourishes and its far-reaching consequences for individuals' safety and freedom as well as each nation's security, economy, and even sovereignty. Importantly, this volume also presents innovative anti-corruption strategies to be undertaken by governments, international organizations, and the media. Devoting special attention to malpractice within police forces, The Policing of Corruption is an important resource for all who work to undo corruption and its debilitating effects.
