Protecting Scientific Integrity

New report from the White House Scientific Integrity Task Force

Does one of these exist for law enforcement?

The DOJ published this in 2001. Is this what you have in mind? https://www.ojp.gov/pdffiles1/ojp/186189.pdf

It basically boils down to: don't be racist or corrupt; don't murder people; follow the Constitution. Or were you thinking of something relating more to forensic science?

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment about the seeming lack of accountability for some officer's behavior. I know it's not prevalent nor specific - but it always feels like the forensic folks are heavily scrutinized by the courts when I personally know police officers who are Brady'ed that don't care and it hasn't made them change anything about how they perform their job.
