This report outlines the responses of Victoria Police employees following research into their understanding of corruption, perceptions of corruption and misconduct, attitudes to reporting corruption and misconduct, and attitudes towards preventing corruption.
In 2016, IBAC engaged research company Urbis to conduct research on perceptions of corruption. Victoria Police employees were surveyed, as were employees from state and local government, and members of the Victorian community.
This research was conducted at a time when Victoria Police was responding to a review conducted by the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission and working to streamline its complaint handling and discipline system, as well as reviewing policies in a number of relevant areas (including conflict of interest).
