In my work on police corruption I speak of 'organisational deviance' where the organisation encourages or colludes in deviant behaviour. There are no 'individuals' in organisations, I claim, and people who enter them change identity. And the pressures, rationalisations, and opportunities for deviance - for or against the institution - are always related 'collectively' to the social nature of work, the diverse cultures, and the structure of the organisation.
