British police help in fight against corruption

IT is better to concentrate on those who corrupt rather than those who are corrupted, was the key message from two British detectives in a three-day workshop for the Slovak police force.

Anti-corruption detectives Carl Bussey and Tom Murray came to Slovakia to teach their Slovak counterparts how to fight corruption within the police force.

Low wages could be a key reason for corruption, according to the British detectives. Britain dealt with the problem by significantly raising police salaries twenty years ago.

The detectives said that in Britain information leaks from the police to criminals was the major problem they faced.

When someone commented that "the British police functions perfectly" the detectives replied that if that were true "our department wouldn't exist," reported the daily SME.
