Cooperative Misconduct

Cooperative misconduct refers to instances where two or more police officers work together to engage in misconduct or violate the law or ethical standards. This type of police misconduct can take many forms, including excessive use of force, falsifying evidence, and covering up or failing to report instances of misconduct by other officers. Cooperative misconduct can have serious consequences, as it can undermine public trust in the police department and the criminal justice system, and can also result in the wrongful conviction of individuals based on false evidence. It is important for law enforcement agencies to establish policies and procedures that promote accountability and transparency, and to take swift action when instances of cooperative misconduct are discovered.
