· In “Rethinking Ethics in Law Enforcement” Fitch states, “Officers’ peers offer friendship and informal rewards that, in many cases, hold greater influence than official recognition from the agency … [this] sense of community drives ofﬁcers to adopt the behaviors, values, and attitudes of the group in order to gain acceptance”. He goes on to claim that, “ofﬁcers engage in certain forms of conduct to secure and maintain peer-group approval” (p. 18).
