11) Procedural Justice as an Indicator for Trust in Policing
Scientific police research increasingly points to the fact that perception of police strongly depends on how just policing is perceived. The concept of “procedural justice“ was mainly tested in Western democracies. A current study from Nigeria is now confirming this assumption for areas with a rather weak social cohesion and thus shows again that (perceived) legitimacy of police actions is a decisive factor in police-citizens-relationships.
