Sexual Assault is a bigger problem than one might think within Police Department, and no one is talking about it.
In a year long investigation of sexual misconduct by US law enforcement, the Associated press uncovered roughly 1000 officers who’ve lost their badges in a 6 year period for sex crimes that included rape, sodomy, propositioning citizens to have sex, possession of child pornography etc.
To make matters worse, that number is a severe undercount because it only represents those officers whose license was revoked, and not all states took that action.
AND, on top of that, 9 states and the District Columbia said they either did not punish officers for misconduct or decline to provide any information.
