In this chapter a very important species of police corruption is analysed, namely, so called noble cause corruption: corruption undertaken to achieve a good purpose. I argue that while noble cause corruption in policing is a pro tanto moral wrong and typically undermined criminal justice processes and purposes (as well as the moral character of police officers), it might be morally justified all things considered in some instances.
