This paper seeks to identify the major effects of corrupt acts on the criminal justice system, police relations with the public and the organisational culture of the police. It emphasises the social harm that corrupt acts result in. The primary purpose of this discussion is to combat the view of police corruption as "victimless." It seeks to bring to the attention of the reader the very damaging effects of corrupt acts and to point out that such acts not only have indirect consequences, but often identifiable victims.
