Procedural justice, trust, and institutional legitimacy
Hough, Mike and Jackson, J. and Bradford, B. and Myhill, A. and Quinton, P. (2010) Procedural justice, trust, and institutional legitimacy. Policing 4 (3), pp. 203-210. ISSN 1752-4512.
This paper summarizes ‘procedural justice’ approaches to policing, contrasting these to the more politically dominant discourse about policing as crime control. It argues that public trust in policing is needed partly because this may result in public cooperation with justice, but more importantly because public trust in justice builds institutional legitimacy and thus public compliance with the law and commitment to the rule of law. Some recent survey findings are presented in support of this perspective.
