  Annotation: The National Symposium on Police Integrity was held in Washington, D.C., in July 1996, and the 200 participants included police chiefs, sheriffs, police researchers, police officers, members of other professional disciplines, community leaders, Federal agency representatives, and participants from several foreign countries.
Abstract: During the conference, participants and speakers agreed that understanding how to establish and maintain integrity is a common concern in law enforcement. After the conference, participants generally agreed that the topic of police integrity has broadened from a narrow focus on police officer behavior and internal corruption investigations to an understanding of the importance of other factors. These factors include leadership, command behavior, supervision, organizational structure, selection and hiring, training, discipline, the police subculture, community values, and political and economic conditions. The conference resulted in a joint action plan to generate improved responses to the police integrity issue. This plan and related conference recommendations are detailed that pertain to training, research and other program initiatives, and model program elements. Appendixes contain a list of conference attendees, selected issue papers on plenary panel presentations, and a bibliography of related sources.
