Oversight of the police
A mechanism of management in which an internal or external apparatus is set up to monitor and evaluate the performance and operations of the police, as well as offer recommendations.
A debriefing system set in place to take the real-life experiences of police officers into account in capacity-building programmes.
Operational control consists of approved policies, routines and standards ensuring that specific police operations and interventions are carried out effectively and efficiently within the legal and ethical framework.
Acts of police corruption and misconduct can be offences that are recognised as violations of the penal code, but can also entail breaches of the internal rules.
Investigative methods or actions are single, legal activities that investigators deploy to gather facts or information. For instance a suspect interview is an investigative method, as is covert surveillance.
