Do Our Cops Behave Better?

Earlier today, the Spokane Police Department announced that it was putting an officer on administrative leave as a result of allegations of misconduct. And the Spokane County Sheriff's Department announced that a deputy had been arrested on assault charges. This sort of stuff seems to go on regularly in Spokane law enforcement. But not so much in police agencies in Kootenai County. Which begs the question:

Question: Are police officers in Kootenai County better behaved than those in Spokane County? Or do police bosses in Kootenai County more skilled at quietly getting rid of bad apples?
