Money, Evolution, and Exchange: A Motivational Context for Illicit Police Behavior

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



Abstract:

Illegal and unethical police behavior is not a topic want of concern and consideration. It continues to be extensively examined by those in academic, political, and professional circles. Specifically within criminology, most such work concentrates on the extent, causes, and effects of corrupt law enforcement practices, with causal inquiries often adopting a framework which forefronts organizational dynamics and/or police subculture. The merit of these efforts notwithstanding, considerably less attention has been granted to other potential lines of investigation. An adequate account of the causes of police corruption arguably must include some consideration for the ways in which the motivation for these practices parallels that underlying similar sorts of behaviors outside of the law enforcement profession. In this light, we might explore several neglected avenues, including those that would lead us toward consideration of the ways in which at least some profit-directed illicit activity by law enforcement officers might reflect the influence of certain evolved psychological mechanisms on human behavior. In this paper, I tentatively explore several such possibilities.
