Police Integrity Testing

25 January, 2020


This Thematic Brief provides practitioners with an introduction to integrity testing. More specifically, it explores the definition of integrity testing, its differences with lifestyle monitoring, the benefits of implementing integrity tests, and what must be considered before and during their implementation. It gives several examples of when and how integrity tests should be used. 

It is intended to provide guidance to a broad range of actors (including government officials, decision makers, and senior/mid-level police managers) on how to develop and sustain police services that function in line with the democratic standards of accountability, transparency, and respect for human rights.
