Abstract

This chapter explores police corruption in inter-war London looking specifically at the case of Sergeant George Goddard. It suggests that corruption was not, as most police historians have argued, a problem of the occasional rotten apple but was, in many instances systemic, and that this was particularly the case in parts of central London in the period after the First World War.
