Kontekstist:

The willingness of members of the public to share information with the police is central to the operation of the criminal justice system. […] Our analysis demonstrates that public confidence in the police is engendered by elements of not only procedural, but also interactional and distributive justice, which is of relevance to sharing information in person, over the phone or online.

We also argue that this public confidence will lead, not only to a greater willingness among the public to comply (as tends to be the focus of much procedural justice literature), but also to share information with the police. We conclude that in addition to micro-level interactions, meso-level social processes, such as models of policing, can be useful in enhancing public confidence.

The current procedural justice approach to policing argues that when members of the public view the police as procedurally fair, police legitimacy, compliance with the law and cooperation with the police are all enhanced and confidence in the police grows.
