The Relationships Between Police Performance and Public Confidence: A Case Study in Thailand
Sociology and Criminal Justice
There have been very few empirical studies conducted in Thailand on public confidence in the Thai police. Most studies on this topic in Thailand are descriptive and have been done only as part of the organization’s annual reports. The results of this study were from a national survey of 9900 Thai people. The study examined the correlations between various factors and public attitudes toward their confidence in police. Of the four categories (demographic, contextual, contact with the police, and attitudes toward police performance), the study’s findings revealed the attitudes toward crime suppression and toward crime prevention, in that order, had the strongest correlations with confidence attitudes in police.
