I think we need to end police quotas. Two examples of police quotas are a minimum amount of arrests required over a certain period of time. Another example is a minimum number of tickets that they give out for speeding or parking violations. If the officer is unable to meet his/her quota then they get fired.
But what if a police officer can not find the minimum number of people breaking the law to fit there quota. The good cop that cant find the minimum law breakers loses his/her job but the bad cop makes up for this by accusing law abiding citizens of breaking the law even though they know that the citizen was innocent.
It does not take a genius to figure out what results from this. Over time more and more of the police force in the area that has the quota becomes corrupt. You can also easily see that the more corrupt the police force is the more bad cops can get away with various crimes. Crimes like shaking down civilians for money, molesting people, accusing some one they don't like of a crime they didn't do and then arresting them ,and so on.
Now I am not naive there will always be police corruption and bad cops. However quotas greatly increase the number of bad cops in our system and help these bad cops get away with a lot more corruption so let's end these pointless quotas.
What do you guys think?

I agree that quotas are bad, but I don't think it necessarily leads to more corruption. That's a little further than I think is justified to conclude without compiling some statistics on the matter.

I concur with pang; what do you think pays a police force's bills? Money they receive from writing tickets. That's why quotas are instituted in the first place.
