Legitimacy in Policing: A Systematic Review of Police Interventions Aimed at Facilitating Legitimacy in Policing

Abstract:

The legitimacy of social institutions, such as the police, is paramount for maintaining social order in communities. To be effective, policing requires the ongoing support and voluntary cooperation of the public. Citizens who perceive the police as legitimate engage more positively with the police, comply with police instructions and cooperate with requests, report higher levels of satisfaction with the police generally, and are more likely to report crime and disorder problems. Research also suggests that there are several ‘ingredients’ which are essential to fostering legitimacy and these include citizen participation, neutrality in decision making, demonstrating dignity and respect and showing trustworthy motives. Considering the importance of police legitimacy in shaping effective and efficient order maintenance, this systematic review will investigate what is known about the police interventions designed to facilitate legitimacy in policing at the micro level (i.e., during police-individual encounters such as with offenders, victims, witnesses and other citizens) and at the macro level (i.e., during police encounters with groups and communities such as during community events, at schools, and in business communities). Results from this systematic review will provide evidence for policy-makers and policing agencies to implement modes of police delivery that advance citizen perceptions of legitimacy.
