6) Police and code of silence
The code of silencehas long been viewed as a serious obstacle in control of police misconduct and achievement of police accountability. The study shows, that police officers’ reluctance to report is the perception that the other officers would not report. The code is also negatively related to familiarity with the official rules, evaluation of misconduct as serious, and the expectation of harsher discipline. http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0887403416680853
