Police Departments Ignore Rampant Sexual Assault by Officers

Credibility the quality of being trusted and believed in. “the government’s loss of credibility” synonyms: trustworthiness, reliability, dependability, integrity; More the quality of being convincing or believable. “the book’s anecdotes have scant regard for credibility”

Why is it generally assumed that Police Officers have more credibility than the general population?

Police Officers are human with the same temptations known to all men/women yet when they are accused of a crime the judicial system still allows them this level of unjustified trust over and above the ‘innocent until proven guilty’ mantra that is afforded all people accused of a crime.
