Policing as an occupation is rife with opportunities for corruption. As recent scandals in Los Angeles and New York demonstrate, police officers, the 'blue knights' entrusted and empowered with legal enforcement, often en up on the wrong side of the law. Despite its suspected prevalence, no comprehensive analysis of police corruption has been published for nearly three decades. Fallen Blue Knights provides a systematic, in-depth analysis of the subject, while also addressing the question of what can be done to ensure successful corruption control. Ivkovic argues that the current mechanisms for control; the courts, prosecutors, independent commissions, and the media, as well as the internal control mechanisms within a police agency itself; suffer from severe shortcomings that substantially limit their effectiveness. In this much-needed analysis, Ivkovic redefines the roles of major players and develops a novel, comprehensive model of corruption control.
