The EU has produced several documents on fighting corruption. The Communication on a comprehensive EU policy against corruption (2003) represented a milestone in building up a solid framework for an EU anti-corruption policy. After 2005 the Commission actively participates in the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) monitoring mechanism. Moreover, the Stockholm Programme (adopted in 2009) looks into the possibility of putting n place a mechanism for periodical evaluation of efforts in the fight against corruption across EU
International organisations including USAID, the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), UNDP and OECD have developed a number of toolkits to assessing police integrity and reviews of anti-corruption measures and institutional best practices in the prevention and combating of police corruption.
- European Partners Against Corruption (EPAC) (2011), Police Oversight Principles.
- DCAF (2011), Police Governance: European Union Best Practices. The paper focuses on best practice within the European Union in the areas of: community policing, auditing internally the police, assessing performance, complaint mechanism against the police, and independent control authority in data protection.
- DCAF (2012), Toolkit on Police Integrity. The toolkit aims to assist police services in designing effective measures to curb police corruption, increasing their ability to fight crime, improving public security and strengthening the rule of law and public trust in the police.
