Guide To Anti-Corruption Singapore
At least two people need to be involved when corruption takes place, that is, someone abusing his/her power by not doing something linked to their work or doing it in the wrong way. Secondly, it involves a person who benefits from the abuse of power or not doing something linked to their work, and who gives something of value in return as payment.
When citizens observe officials breaking laws or using unnecessary force, they often lose faith in the entire organization. Police misconduct affects the interaction between the police and the community. Citizens report fewer crimes, and fewer witnesses come forward to assist in prosecuting Anti-Corruption Singapore cases. The public cooperates with the police when they trust law enforcement and believe in the organization’s integrity. Police corruption undermines that public trust. By taking small kickbacks or bribes or engaging in petty theft, corrupt officers send out a message to the public that such behaviour is acceptable and perhaps even encouraged.
