Abstract

The Nigerian public has consistently perceived its police force as one of the least effective in the world, due largely to the endemic corruption that pervades the police architecture. This article is historically anchored on observations and a review of literature on police corruption, and simultaneously examines the factors influencing police corruption with two objectives; to explore and describe what constitutes corruption within the police force, and to make recommendation on what could be possibly done by Nigerian government to checkmate this phenomenon that has eating deep into the fabric of the Nigeria Police Force.
