Despite its suspected prevalence, no comprehensive analysis of police corruption has been published for nearly three decades. Fallen Blue Knights provides a systematic, in-depth analysis of the subject, while also addressing the question of what can be done to ensure successful corruption control. Ivkovic argues that the current mechanisms for control-the courts, prosecutors, independent commissions, and the media, as well as the internal control mechanisms within a police agency itself-suffer from severe shortcomings that substantially limit their effectiveness. In this much-needed analysis, Ivkovic redefines the roles of major players and develops a novel, comprehensive model of corruption control.
