A special page for police officers............
Police officers - please see a discussion document that
defines police corruption, that is located near the beginning of
the articles section.
Think about this, many of you may object to the idea of
this site, encouraging police victims to consider actions, or
for others to discover some of the many dishonest practices used by the
British police.Within this document created a few years ago
many of the arguments we hear to excuses dishonest action by police
officers is considered.
When you are a victim of the police I can tell you it is worse than
being the victim of other criminal groups because we know we have
no one to protect us or to stop such actions occurring again.
The very people others may mistakenly believe are there to protect
them are the threat.
Sufficiently corrupt officers may wish to interfere with our servers
for this site, but I should point out that the web addressing system
is controlled from outside the UK, and we can switch these over so
that the information on backup servers in other countries come on
line very quickly.In addition interfering with our server arrangements
will effect many other organizations within the UK, guaranteeing
We will not name corrupt police officers by name or give details
to allow them to be identified on the net.
Nor will we name people tricked into being accomplices of them.
Should at any time we decide to change this policy we will give
2weeks notice here.
Hopefully in the future an honest and just complaints system will be
fully implemented, and then you may actually stick to the full spirit
However it is my view that large claims and complaints from
insurers is more likely to have an effect on cleaning up dishonest
police practices than governments suggesting that you police
To honest officers:
Please see our discussion paper on police corruption at the start
of the articles section. Are you honest, truthful, and not use any of
the corrupt practices outlines.
If you are honest, then this site should help you to spread honest
practices and help to make other officers consider their errant ways.
We appreciate that you are in a minority and many people just cant
stick the culture of corruption, racialism and other questionable traits
that has developed, and that for many the only answer ultimately is
However we don't want honest officers to leave, although
in a minority and with custom and practice many of your senior
officers will have become used to looking the other way or arranging cover
ups, if the system is ever to become changed it is necessary for good
honorable people to stay, and even perhaps become whistle blowers.
The following document was produced by New Atlantis is 1998 or
early 1999, as a discussion document ahead of the Independent
Inquiry Society starting their study of police corruption within the UK.
It attempts to define corruption, not as just police officers receiving
brown enveloped stuffed with money, but other corrupt practices
that had been encountered during other investigations.
We could expand this list now, but for now have left the old document
that many officers and others have seen in the past.
If you look through official papers and reports you see corruption
featured. for example in the police inspectorates annual report.
It is said to be a minority of bad apples.
Message to individual police officers:
You hear us talk of corruption and you close ranks, None you know
of.The problem is perhaps in the definition of corruption.
You in most cases are thinking of corruption in terms of payments
received by officers for advantage by criminal groups.
By this definition the police inspectorate and others are correct,
their are a few bad apples.
They exist in small numbers in every police force in the UK.
Yes you have had rule changes about evidence levels needed to
throw them out.
Our definition is wider, If you do something to the benefit of a friend,
retired police officer, or so someone supports any cause charity or
individual even if you make no personal gain, if it is to the
detriment of someone else it is corruptions.
If you use 'can say' statements to make witnesses say what you
want them to or trick, induce, seduce or by other means get a
witness to say something that they would not freely do it
If you take action designed or that you know will destroy any
persons living, business, relationships or reputation and this is
outside PACE (police and criminal evidence act) or is beyond the
minimum necessary to look for evidence this is corruption.
If you stop a person from gaining access to information that
would allow them to prove themselves innocent this is corruption.
If you suppress or hide information, alibis or evidence, or merely
omit to make the facts known openly available to the defense
then this is corruption.
To create phony charges that have no basis in fact mealy to
get a defendant remanded is corruption.
To get a defendant remanded without real and just cause or
to prevent them from pulling together a proper defense is
To leak information to others knowing they will be likely to
intimidate defense witnesses is corruption.
Top fail to look at the motives of those making accusations,
and where this is obviously the cause of unsubstantiated
complains is corruption.
To hold prisoners without proper food drink and representation
or to threaten coerce or intimidate prisoners is corruption.
To give false evidence, falsify records, statements, selectively use
partsof information where you know it does not give a fair
representation is corruption.
To target a person so as to fit them up, in order to create
favorable statistics is corrupt.
To target a person with leaning difficulties or anyone else
unable to protect themselves from evil is corruption.
To operate a rotary door policy where criminals are set free in
exchange for giving a story against another, often so as to
gain more prosecutions for statically reasons as opposed to
prosecuting criminals is corrupt.
To purposely allow a criminal to go free, or to avoid detecting
a crime so as to increase overtime or for some other reason is
To take an easy suspect and manufacture a case to
save time, or through laziness to fail to fully investigate other
options is corruption.
To do anything else which is dishonest or
to the detriment of an innocent person gaining the end of a
persecution is corruption.
The war on crime argument.
You may have been persuaded that some guilty people will
escape what you are told is justice.
That it is a war, and that you cannot win a war by playing
according to the rules.
That some casualties in war are unavoidable.
The problem is the Innocent victims of the police
play by the rules while those with experience as well as paid
advisors do not.
The everyone does it argument:
Yes, you start as a flat foot, pound the beat, sort out the drunks,
eventually perhaps you get a chance to get involved in something
more interesting or into CID.
Other officers show you how its done.
Time is limited you need to make an impression, perhaps some
niceties get overlooked, perhaps the gang attitude prevailing
means you get carried along with the lynch mob.
Before long the occasional slip has become standard practice.
Time is short, particularly where time has been spent on an
investigation you feel the need for something to show for all
After all everyone else does it, Dixon of Dock Green no longer has a
place in the modern police force.
Your involved in a war of crime, not a social worker.Stop.
As soon as you are involved in corruption, you are a criminal,
so is it a war on crime or a gangland war you think you are in?
We cant get prosecutions without argument:
A vast section of the population has lost all confidence in the police,
most would rather avoid than help, many of your superiors
have very limited ability, and often the criminals are perceived to
be more intelligent or have better resources.
You act as a gang for your own protection, and because you
have few friends in the community, old style policing is largely gone.
You realise that the spiral of corruption is becoming wider known
and therefore the amount of free help you can get from the
public is reducing.
Most reasonably well educated people will either avoid helping or
bring a solicitor with them even when making a witness statement.
Back some time ago, when aprentiships was common people could
either have an aprentiship or stay on to gain qualifications
for an office job.
If they did not get the qualifications, then they could not then get
an aprentiship and was left with military service or passing the far
easier police entry exams.
Many who stayed on but were not up to GCE,ended up in the
police, now these people are 50 or more and are running
OK some are not the brainiest, but do they need to be.
All they have to do is follow the rules, and collect information.
Probably a larger problem is that they are also poor people
managers, but that is not an intelligence problem just a case of
selecting from the ranks as opposed to selecting from the
Moving officers fairly frequently in an attempt to avoid opportunities
for cash corruption also means skill in a specialty is not gained.
Added to this compared with other countries we have very little
training and a legal system that no-one understands.
What can you do.
You could leave, as you will know many honest officers can nolonger
stomach what is happening, don't feel they can do anything about it
and feel the need to all show a united front.
We don't want you to leave, that will not cure the problem, it just
means that more corrupt officers get promoted faster.
We realise you are in a paramilitary gang style organisation, and
as an individual you can do very little.
But start working on your colleagues, get them to do a little more work,
and point out their victims to them.
We would welcome you to join New Atlantis, yes you need
to behave honorably.
Do it openly, if you can, you will get problems, but document these,
and whenthe time comes publish.
If you have to leave the police force, due to intimidation or bullying
tell your local press, they problem will not cover it, but eventually
they may get the massage.What would we like.
An amnesty, a full stop, and start again. From that point corruption
within the police is not accepted by any of you.Never ever again.
Police officers, solicitors and others offered a two month amnesty
where if they admit the various miscarriages of justice, corrupt
practices used and fake evidence created they will not be
Where they have many years of corrupt practices that have
effected thousands of victims they may need to be given longer
to complete the full disclosure process.They have to say who else was involved.
A commission of independent people who would look at misdeeds in
the past and try to put as much right as they can, this means
getting innocent people out of prisons fast, giving compensation
in some cases, setting the record straight and in effect society
saying sorry to those who it has let down so badly.
By the use of computers and the commission to identify those
corrupt officers who have not come forward and to immediately
suspend them without pay until the case against them is
To establish a complaints investigation group, made up of some
military intelligence, honest officers and members of the public,
to follow up all complaints from this point on very rapidly and to
maintain records of complaints made to spot patterns emerging.
To establish a justice department that takes a first look at all cases
to see if their is any reason to proceed with any prosecution, and in
every case where it can to find another arrangement that allows
the individual to become a valid member of society.
Some may say these ideas are not realistic, that too many people
have their snout in the trough, that the best officers have got out
and only the scum is left.
That these thugs that run our police force, the gangs, don't mix with
ordinary people, and protect their own.
But the spiral is gaining momentum, more corrupt actions go on now
than last year, and so on.
Eventually the society that you live in will not only not work with you,
but turn against you.
You know that, and many police stations are now being created
castle likefor defending, but you are a minority, you can only
operate with the will of the people.
Do something quick or it may be too late.
