Improving misconduct reporting in the QPS: the importance of ethical culture

In 2013, the CMC surveyed 371 Queensland police officers to examine the relative contributions of job-related factors and ethical culture in influencing officers’ intention to report misconduct. In this study, intention was used as a proxy measure for behaviour.

This sample comprised a broad range of officers — from recruits and First Year Constables (FYCs) through to Commissioned Officers — with different work duties (for example, general duties or specialist), and from different geographic locations (the Brisbane area, regional urban centres and rural centres). To our knowledge, this is the first study to examine the influence of job-related factors and ethical culture on officers’ intention to report misconduct in a general sample of police officers.
