    Default New Plans To Crack Down On Police Corruption




    New plans to crack down on corruption in police forces are expected to be announced by the Home Secretary Theresa May later today.

    Under the rules, officers with a history of sexual or financial misconduct will not be able to become chief constables.

    All officers will also have to register on a public website any gifts and hospitality they receive.

    The newly formed College of Policing will be asked to draw up a code of practice for vetting applicants for the post of chief constable and deputy to avoid cases where applicants fail to disclose sex harassment claims.

    The move follows a series of high-profile scandals, including the police cover-up of their role in the Hillsborough disaster, the phone-hacking affair, and the row over police claims that former Tory chief whip Andrew Mitchell called an officer a "pleb".

    Political correctness is the cancer eating away at all professions. Even the Pope has given up in despair. Censorship everywhere.

    It's certainly a point worthy of discussion...but what on earth has got it to do with the topic Police corruption?

    This makes it look like the problem just lies at the very top of the tree. Corruption is rife at every level in the police. The amount of complaints to the police complaints commission is at record high.

    Police corruption is nothing new it always have been and always will be in some form or other. Like getting special discounts from suppliers etc, turn a blind eye to mates .
    When I was young the saying was if you are away for a few days and wife is home alone don't tell the vicar,if you are all away on holiday don't tell the local copper

    Tory retribution for getting their chief whip sacked maybe ?

    all police and government are corrupt to the core as bobwill and johnboy1974 have pointed out

    IMHO prolific corruption from the bottom up to the very top !!!

    A bet the police just love Theresa May now, a don't think she went far enough tbh.
    Three things in the past year have disgusted me, three things that should have brought the police to their knees and warranted total reform.

    Leveson Inquiry-- A don't know about you but a was seething watching it as it was revealed that the scum Tabloid media was propping up the pension fund.
    This was a "clear" conflict of interests and if senior police officers can't see this, then they shouldn't be police at all.
    Its clear the hacking scandal wouldn't have progressed if the initial investigation had taken place.

    Simon Harwood-- Policeman with history of violence on front line of riots throws drunk man to the ground, drunk man dies short time later and Policeman cleared in court.
    Not to mention it was caught on tape for all the world to see, if that were you or i we would be in jail.

    Hillsborough-- One of the most vile cover ups ever, a joint venture by police and their pals the Scum, sorry Sun in blaming innocent fans of atrocious acts.
    It didn't end there as documents were lost, some were edited, statements changed and innocent fans being labelled scum who steal from the dead.
    It prompted David Cameron to say "sorry" , when he should have said, "no expense will be spared in bringing these criminals to justice".

    We can all forgive mistakes, we are all human and often make them but corruption is another thing, its a sinister plot to blame someone else or deflect the truth and that is unacceptable in the police.
    If the police were just and honourable they would make examples of corrupt officers but that wont happen when the corruption starts at the top.

    the police have no reason to feel special
    corruption is rife in nearly every walk of life.
    it is the power in the hands of a minority who become power pished when left with what they consider to be no one to answer to.

    who polices the police?????

    like i said,every walk of life,the minority of untouchables who when questioned about their behaviour reply with a sneer and the threat of a big stick

    we will always have bad apples in the crate

    I couldn't possible comment on this, I've never got any points for speeding, dangerous driving, drunk driving, never had my drugs confiscated the the brothel I run has never been so busy. My mate the chief constable was debating this the other day between our snorts of coke and he thinks that the investigation is a waste of time and would deflect from his time spent with the hookers I send round.

    He did say he was sure it was nothing to do with any MP being accused of swearing at police officers doing their job, no matter what the swearword was, or that the MP is a mate of Daves, honestly.
    My master plan is to live forever..... going to plan so far
    Despite the cost of living, it's still very popular.
    No good deed goes unpunished....

    Isnt corruption just a normal human trait born from love of money doesnt matter whether rich or poor


    It goes on in every workplace i have ever worked

    It goes on in the street with benefit fraud, its got that good now some people dont even class it as fraud its just normal

    Cash in hand workers, Self employed workers 5 for me one or none for taxman


    Corruptions rife everywhere doesnt make it right but in life people generally take whatever they can get, especially if they feel they wont be caught or see other people doing it,


    Why are police going to be any different?

    When you are in a position of power you have a duty and obligation to lead others by example. Everything has to become more transparent for the future. ie We actually have folk in the powerful positions that give a xxxx. You are born with your word and you die with it. Just how good it was is actually up to yourself.
