New Rules for Russia’s Cops: No Bribes or Wild Sex

http://digg.com/world_news/New_Rules_for_Russia_s_Cops_No_Bribes_or_Wild_Sex
Police in Russia have long had a reputation for three things: bribery, cruelty and ineptitude. Now the government is determined to change that image by teaching police that taking drugs or bribes or befriending criminals are probably all bad ideas. At a time when protests are breaking out across the country over Moscow’s handling of the financial crisis, the Ministry of Internal Affairs says it has drawn up a new code of conduct for the police and will distribute it to every officer by the end of 2009. The aim: to turn Russia’s police into polished professionals. The code goes into striking detail on how officers should behave both in public and private. Police, it says, should avoid casinos, “indiscriminate sex” and “questionable relationships with people with negative public reputations such as criminals.” Drinking on duty, talking on cell phones on public transport, using drugs, offering or accepting bribes and engaging in “gross jokes and wicked irony” are also out.
