This chapter examines the prevalence and patterns of career-ending misconduct at the organizational level and provides our definitional framework for misconduct. Specifically, it identifies eight categories of career-ending misconduct, ranging from on-duty profit-motivated misconduct to off-duty public order crimes to administrative violations and “failure to perform” designations. The chapter then describes the annual patterns of organizational misconduct over the study period, examining the distribution of misconduct across the eight categories. Notably, this chapter also includes a separate discussion of on-duty abuse of authority, given that this form of misconduct was rarely observed in the present data. Last, it presents results from bivariate analyses examining characteristics of officers who got jammed up and their matched counterparts.
