Project 2.2 ‘Integrity Systems’ aims to advance knowledge about effective corruption prevention and integrity management in policing and security. The project team is concerned with documenting and understanding different types of misconduct, including bribery and other forms of financial corruption, legal process corruption, assaults and excessive force, discrimination, neglect of duty, and a range of other types of unethical behaviour. Team members are also concerned with identifying emerging ethical issues and areas where standards need refining and updating. The focus, however, is on identifying, analysing and promoting successful strategies for managing integrity and improving accountability. In security, examples include enhanced monitoring of security provider conduct by regulatory agencies, improved mandated training, responsive complaints processing and investigations, and systems of government-industry co-regulation. In policing, the project team is particularly interested in strategies such as profiling and early intervention systems, integrity testing, drug and alcohol testing, covert tactics, communication and negotiating skills training, and independent investigations and oversight – as well as related strategies such as complaints mediation and local resolution of complaints. Requests for information and reports should be directed to the authors who will be happy to assist.
