Foreign experience of police corruption counteraction

TERRA ECONOMICUS, , Vol. 11 (no. 2.1),
p. 16-24

Police corruption counteraction arrangements are to be analyzed as the particular case of institutional construction, which presupposes definition of new «game rules» system and elaboration of the mechanisms of motivation/penalty for its adherence/contempt. These rules and mechanisms are universal, but their effectiveness varies considerably according to stage of development and cultural level of different groups of countries. Review of the methods of counteraction to the police corruption in foreign countries, its applications and results (with the «Georgian miracle» included), reveal that there is no any easy way to «exempt» the interior agencies from corruption.
