Too much effort has been put to retrain the police force, but they have not born many fruits because the issue remains; corruption. The Iraq police are extremely sectarian, and they have always been involved in the kidnapping and asking for ransoms as well as bribery. Other than this, they are also very lazy in their job, and this can be seen in their inability to curb terrorism in the country.

The Kenyan police are critically plagued by corruption, and it is a society decay that needs to be dealt with because the citizens are the ones suffering a great deal.

This trickles down to services like healthcare, education, registrations, and even acquiring of permits. You just have to pay your way to them. If you look at the life of an average Kenyan police and compare with their wages, then you will see what we are talking about clearly. This has hindered service provision a great deal in the country
Sudan is a country that has seen a lot of troubled times. They have fought for a very long time, and finally, there was a separation of the country into two so as to cater for the two conflicting groups. While under the leadership of Omar Al-Bashir, there was a lot of violence and police brutality. When the commander in chief is wicked and ready to allow genocide to happen in his land because of selfish interests, do you think the police force will be any different? Well, the results of the police force’s exposure to all vices have landed Sudan where it is right now. The corrupt nature of the police force still haunts the citizens.

2. Mexican police
The Mexican police force is one of the most dangerous police force on planet earth. They know no boundaries. They are known to extort money from the citizens and even tourists. In the worst case scenario, one can be asked to give a bribe or be killed. The police are there to protect and not to endanger. In Mexico, crime is the order of the day.

1. Burma police
This country needs divine intervention for corruption to end. The roots of corruption run deeper in this country, and it has proved to be an impossible thing to do. Primarily, the governance of the county is under the regime of authoritative military force. Being the ones that are the most corrupt, who will save the country, these policemen ask for bribes before conducting any investigations when a crime is reported. We cannot be sure that they cannot be bought to drop the investigations too. The citizen’s rights are highly at risk in this country with injustice being on the rampant.
All the above police forces have very serious issues that need to be addressed as fast as possible. When corruption is rampant in a country, there will be no progress because the progress is derailed. Corruption will always subject people to unfairness in service delivery and give the wrong people like criminals advantages over others. There is just no way for a criminal to protect the innocent people against criminals. This is because they are the same.
