Police

Citizens think that the police are the most corrupt public institution, with nearly half (47 per cent) believing that most or all police officers are corrupt. This is consistent with the previous round of findings from the 2015 survey, suggesting that more work needs to be done to improve citizen trust in police, the GCB report said. In DRC, where corruption is rife, eighty-one per cent of citizens thinks the police are corrupt, followed by Gabon (75 per cent) and Uganda (70 per cent).
