 An internal RCMP study found 322 incidents of corruption within the national police force over an 11-year period.

The most common type of corrupt behaviour was improper disclosure of police information, sometimes to family members or friends.

Fraud and things like falsifying evidence, fixing tickets and protecting illegal activities were other types of corruption.

The RCMP undertook the study, dubbed Project Sanction, to help identify trends with a view to developing an anti-corruption strategy.

The study _ which covered the period 1995 to 2005 _ was completed in 2007 but was only recently released to The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.

The RCMP says it has since adopted many of the report's recommendations, adding there is no evidence that corruption is a significant issue within its ranks.<
