Cops Behaving Badly

What happens when the police fail in their sworn duty to protect life, when they get it wrong or when police officers themselves break the law?

BBC’s Richard Bilton investigates cops who behave badly, and discovers just how many cases are dealt with by the police themselves behind closed doors.

This film asks why, in some cases, are police officers who are accused of misconduct, simply allowed to walk away.

The Chair of the Association of Police Authorities replied to the investigation with: “Whilst it is true that the resignation of an officer accused of misconduct could be in the public interest, it is absolutely necessary that such situations are governed by consideration of what will build public trust and confidence and are handled with appropriate transparency.”
