Abstract

While research on police has its inherent part within social sciences in Anglo-Saxon countries, the police are only marginal researched within the Swiss research landscape. Additionally, research on trust and institutions mainly deals with political institutions rather than with courts or the police. The on hand article contributes to close this gap in the way that it looks at people’s trust in the Swiss police. It analyses procedural fairness, the role of police officers in interactions with the public, and trust in political institutions. Moreover, interpersonal trust is included. According to data of the European Social Survey (ESS) from the year 2010, results reveal strong correlations between trust in the police, generalized trust,and experiences with the police.
