Police Officer Crimes and Police Integrity

Speakers
Dr. Philip Stinson
Dr. Philip Stinson, Bowling Green State University, discusses the findings of his research on crimes committed by police officers.

However, in some cases, at times due to the stressors of the job and frequent exposure to trauma and violence, officers engage in misconduct or criminal behavior. The National Institute of Justice understands what’s at stake for public safety and officer wellness when we ignore warning signs of officers struggling with occupational hazards and other psychological hardships.

In this video, Dr. Stinson discusses how he collected information on police officer crimes, how many arrested officers were in his sample, and what his research means for law enforcement agency policy.
