Excellent book about how to get through a Polygraph.  Just don't tell the test taker that you have read it. 

After Crunching the Numbers: 
.08% (1 in 116) officers are cited for misconduct
13% of those are sex offenses/ sex related
800,000 estimated police officers in the US (thats one per RSO!)
Now let's crunch the numbers...

that makes ~ 6,873 instances of officer misconduct of which 13% are sex related offenses giving us a grand (estimated) total of.... 893 sex offenses committed by police officers during a six month period from April to Sept 2009 or nearly 18 per state!

that makes about 1.5% of all sex offenses are committed by police (893/63000)
Police officers make up 0.3% of the population in the US (800,000/311,745,000)

Now, according to the AP, only 500 teachers were arrested as sex offenders out of 3.5 million teachers, which makes .014% of teachers committed sex offenses or 0.7% of sex offenses were committed by teachers. Police commit sex offenses at twice the rate as teachers.
