Bad Cops: A Study of Career-Ending Misconduct among New York City Police Officers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Police scholars and public policy makers across generations have sought to identify reliable correlates of police misconduct. Despite these efforts, general statements as to the etiology and epidemiology of police misconduct remain absent from the literature, in part because of the inconsistent definitions of misconduct and the difficulty of obtaining the data required to make such statements. This research attempts to fill these gaps through a comparison of the personal and career histories of all 1,543 officers who were involuntarily separated from the New York City Police Department (NYPD) for cause during 1975-96 to a randomly selected sample of their Police Academy classmates who served honorably. The study uses confidential NYPD files as its major data sources, which include extensive biographical and career information. The study finds that career-ending misconduct rarely occurs in the NYPD, and that the types of misconduct do not match well with existing definitions. A number of factors emerge as significant predictors of misconduct including officer race, minimal education, records of prior criminality and prior poor employment, failure to advance in the NYPD, and histories of citizen complaints.
