Under the life-course criminality thesis police offending should not occur. White-collar crime seems to be driven by life events combined with the opportunity to commit crimes that did not exist earlier in the life of the offender.

Group members emulate the ethics of their peers and prefer them, even over those of direct authority figures (Granitz and Ward, 2001). Consequently, a person feels they will ‘join in’ and act unethically rather than letting their friends down (Beck, 1999; Grossman, 1995; Weber, Kurke, and Pentico, 2003).
