It is well accepted that the control of police misconduct, like crime itself, is directly related to the performance of the government and to the safety and perceived well-being of citizens in a democratic society (Franklin, 1999). Nevertheless, the picture of policing that emerges thus far is one of the increases in incidences and costs of misconduct because of the use of excessive force, collusion by some officers coupled with failures in transparency, and accountability by agencies charged with police oversight. Current efforts to curb police misconduct can be classified based on whether they are regulatory, legislative, and judicial (Swanson, Territo, & Taylor, 2001).
