Video Analyses Noble cause corruption follows the teleological model of ethics. The approach emphasizes “good ends” and is a product of police officer “overinvestment” in their work. Police officers believe that in foregoing established legal procedures, they will more effectively remove criminals from the street and protect the public from harm. Examples of noble cause corruption include falsifying reports, planting or fabricating evidence, and/or exceeding or abusing lawful authority. In doing so, police officers believe that a desirable end is achieved (Martinelli, 2006).
