Corruption: n 1: lack of integrity or honesty
Integrity: n. Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code.
Oh I don't know. Putting an incompetent officer on the force, and then covering for her after she kills someone doesn't seem to adhere to either the ethical and moral code I'd expect out of law enforcement officers or any sense of honesty. Nor does covering for her seem particularly honest or ethical. I'd say that word fits.
You might want to take your own advice?
Edit: I'm a few minutes late with this I see. Oh well.
Anyway, it's true that it has nothing to do with corruption in the sense that we normally hear the word used. Ie. business and political scandals and the like. However, according to dictionary.com, which it seems you're fond of, her hiring and the subsequent cover-up seem to fit within the technical definition of corruption. *shrugs* Whatever though.
