Police in South Africa are increasingly perceived as being corrupt. Research indicates that corruption is especially prevalent in the enforcement of traffic regulations which, in the major urban centres, is primarily the responsibility of Metropolitan Police Departments (MPDs). As police organisations established and managed by city councils, MPDs are independently responsible for integrity and corruption management in their departments. This paper represents the first attempt of its kind to understand and compare the manner in which the different MPDs try to address these challenges.
