In shock-10 Most Corrupt Police Forces in the World, No.1 Is From Africa

"Police corruption" refers to when corrupt police personnel use their position to benefit themselves and their families.

In general, corruption is considered as an issue in every organization, and it undermines public trust in law enforcement.

However, we will focus our investigation on the top ten most corrupt police agencies in the world, as decided by the United Nations.

Burma Police Force #10

Despite being administered by a military dictatorship, Burma is notorious for having one of the world's most corrupt police forces.

Their police force is notorious for kidnapping people and holding their money, including bribes, for extended periods of time.

One of the elements contributing to police corruption in Burma, according to Wikipedia, is that officers were not obligated to provide any compensation or incentive for independent investigations.

Pakistan Police Force (#9)

The Pakistan Police Department is yet another police force that has been accused of being particularly corrupt in recent years due to a high number of extortion, murder, abuse, and bribery incidents.

According to Transparency International Pakistan's analysis, the court system is one of the world's most corrupt institutions, second only to law enforcement authorities in terms of corruption.

#8 Russian Police Forces

Given that Russia is one of the world's most corrupt countries, it should come as no surprise that their police force is also among the most corrupt.

According to a 2005 survey by the Levada-Center research organization, more than half of the police officers studied had side jobs to supplement their salaries, and nearly 20% made extra money while on the job.

Sudanese Police Forces #7

The Sudan Police Force, which is often regarded as one of Africa's most corrupt, seems unsurprised.

You have a history of accepting payments from people with no consequences, and even if you denounce them, no action will be taken against them.

According to human rights organizations, Sudanese police officers are accused of habitually violating human rights, including making arbitrary and unlawful arrests.

Afghanistan Police Force, No. 6

The police and judiciary in this country are both infamously corrupt. Corruption has had a significant impact on Afghan police, and there are few signs that it will be addressed anytime soon.

Police officers can lose up to half of their pay due to corruption, allowing them to solicit bribes while abusing the confidence of the people they are supposed to protect.

Iraqi Police Forces, #5

The Iraqi Police Force ranks sixth on this list of unethical police forces, having been known to engage in unethical behavior on occasion.

Despite the fact that various reforms have been adopted inside the police department, they do not appear to be effective.

Furthermore, bribery, theft, and police violence remain a worry in the United States of America under the current administration.

Kenyan Police Force No. 4

The Kenyan police force is ranked fourth in this rating.

According to Kenyan police, corruption is common at an 81 percent rate, making them the country's most corrupt institution and one of East Africa's top ten most bribe-prone institutions.

Kenya, among other things, is replete with human rights violations, corruption, and extortion.

Mexico's Police Force is ranked third.

Mexico is widely recognized in today's world as a country governed by drug lords, a truth that is universally acknowledged.

Furthermore, one of the most serious issues that Mexican law enforcement must address is police corruption.

The country's high unemployment rate, low pay, and widespread drug trade are thought to be the fundamental reasons of police corruption.

Haitian National Police No. 2

It is well-known for disrespecting the Haitian community and dragging the entire police force into shame, in addition to breaching human rights and the constitution. It is also notorious for having one of the most corrupt police forces in the world.

The Nigerian Police Force is number one.

The Nigerian police force, according to the World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI), has the world's largest technical department, which is based in Lagos.

The Nigerian police force was notorious for bribery, illegal detention, torture, and assassinating individuals, among other things.

Which side are you on when it comes to this issue? Do you think the ranking system is fair, or do you think it isn't?

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts, and stay tuned for more.
