Study shows police corruption begins early in career

ETHICS begin to slide the minute Queensland police recruits leave the academy, a new study shows.

New officers are less likely to report misconduct by colleagues after they have finished their training, according to the results of the study by the Crime and Misconduct Commission.

The study was based on surveys of police recruits and first-year constables during the past year.

It found new officers avoided dobbing in colleagues because they were afraid of being identified, felt they lacked evidence, or did not trust the person to whom they had to report.
