En genel anlamda iç güvenlikten sorumlu olan kolluk görevlilerinin, gerek ceza-adalet sistemi (CAS) içindeki adli görevlerini yaparken gerekse iç güvenlik sistemi (İS) kapsamındaki asayişle ilgili idari görevlerini yerine getirirken dürüst olması ve dürüst kalması toplumsal huzur, güven ve adaletin sağlanması ve korunması açısından büyük önem taşımaktadır. Bu kadar önemli bir çalışma alanında Türkiye’de yapılan akademik araştırmaların uluslararası literatürle kıyaslandığında çok az olduğu gözlenmektedir. Bu makalede ilk olarak, kolluk görevlileri tarafından işlenmesi muhtemel ve literatürde beyaz yaka suç türü olarak sınıflandırılan sapma davranışının uluslararası literatüre göre nasıl bir sınıflandırılmaya tabi tutulduğu ve bu tür suçların nedenlerinin neler olabileceği üzerinde durulacaktır. Daha sonra, gelişmiş ülkelerde kolluk görevlilerinin gösterdiği sapma davranışlarının önlenmesi için geliştirilen ve uygulanan stratejilere değinilecektir
