Bribery / Official Corruption
Official corruption refers to a specific instance of police misconduct where an officer uses their position and authority for personal gain or to further illegal activities. This can include accepting bribes, falsifying records or evidence, or using their position to further criminal activities. Official corruption is a serious breach of trust and can have a significant impact on the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession. Such incidents can result in criminal charges and disciplinary action for the corrupt officer, as well as harm to the public's perception of the police.
