Influencing Citizen Attitudes about the Russian Police: The Roles of Media Consumption and Trustworthiness

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since the breakdown of the Soviet Union, public approval ratings of Russian police have remained low. Mass media portrayal of the police has been identified as one of the potential contributors to the problem of public-police relations in Russia. Many criminal justice professionals believe that due to the lack of strong censorship in the post -Soviet Union, the Russian media has influenced public approval of Russian police by its negative portrayal of police. This study examines public, police, and media relationships to empirically test the media’s effect on public attitudes about the police. Specifically, the study examines whether media exposure and trustworthiness have impacted public attitudes about the police directly along with any reciprocal effects. The findings show that relationships between the media and public perceptions of the police are complex. While there are statistically significant relationships between levels of media exposure and public approval of police, media trustworthiness also has a statistically significant result. The findings suggest that while media can have some impact on citizen attitudes about the police, simultaneously there is a state of public distrust that is attributable to both the media and the police.
