without comments


On February 21, 2014, Phil Stinson and Steve Brewer presented a paper on the Victims of Police Sexual Misconduct at the 2014 annual conference of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The presentation is available on iTunes as this month’s episode of the Police Integrity Lost podcast.

Little is known about officers arrested for crimes related to police sexual misconduct and their victims. The study is a quantitative content analysis of news articles reporting 771 arrests of 555 police officers for sex-related crimes during the years 2005-2008. The arrested officers were employed by 449 nonfederal state, local, and special law enforcement agencies located in 349 counties and independent cities in 44 states and the District of Columbia. Multivariate analyses include logistic regression and classification tree regression models. Findings and policy implications are discussed, with an emphasis on the victims of police sexual misconduct.
