COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (PRWEB) June 15, 2015
T.A. Garrison sheds new light on the sordid reality of police corruption in her new book “Breeding Ground for Corruption” (published by Xlibris). Here, the author of the insightful volume “Perspectives in Criminal Justice” introduces a new theory that explains why police are subject to commit deviant crimes.
“Corruption is a controversial topic that has existed for centuries,” Garrison says, “Previous explanations were grounded upon many psychological theories but there has not been enough to address the core factors that leads to corruption.”
In “Breeding Ground for Corruption,” Garrison delves into the research of corruption and discusses the commonalities she discovered among many existing cases. These cases serve as the foundation for the Garrison Deviance Conformity Theory which she highlights in the book. Coupling several characteristics such as PTSD, length of career, and other characteristics, Garrison provides a thought provoking look into the cause of police corruption.
“This book gives a unique viewpoint than what is out there today,” the author says, “It does not condemn the duties of the police. Rather, it gives a better understanding as to what these individuals go through on a daily basis along with potential long term effects.”
