Politsei edukus on ennustatav muuhulgas legitiimsuse aspektist. Kõrge legitiimsus elanike hulgas on eelduseks nii adekvaatse info adekvaatseks liikumiseks kui võimaldab manööverdamist ja eksimusi. Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele politseihuvilistele.

Legitiimsuse tuum demokraatias:

“Central to the legitimacy of democratic regimes is the consent of the governed, the idea that institutional structures reflect the collective will of the people. Absent that consent, governments cannot expect compliance with law or any other forms of recognition of legitimate authority.” (Bunnell, 2022, p. 1)

Politsei legitiimsuskriisis:

“However, policing institutions currently face a global legitimacy crisis. Activists and grassroots organizations, including, notably, the Black Lives Matter movement, have organized for generations against pervasive policing practices steeped in traditions of institutional discrimination and militarized violence.” (Bunnell, 2022, p. 2)


“The research focuses on the question of how the concepts of police accountability, popular consent, and legitimacy were related in the public discourse throughout the reform implementation process.” (Bunnell, 2022, p. 2)


“Finally, I assessed and reflected upon the quantitative and qualitative findings to glean insights regarding the evolution of reports about the police. Traditionally, “content analysis sees messages as coded representations of the real world, fixed and knowable” (Bertrand & Hughes, 2005, p. 174), and, indeed, the analysis treats print media as representations of militant nationalist public opinion.” (Bunnell, 2022, p. 10)

Politsei edukus on ennustatav:

“The issue of democratic legitimacy lies at the heart of these discussions regarding police reform and the development of just and effective policing. Police effectiveness is predicated upon public support and cooperation, and this support is inextricably tied to public perceptions of the force’s legitimacy; indeed, the primary reason members of the public cooperate with the police is their acceptance of the police as legitimate legal authorities (Tyler, 2004).” (Bunnell, 2022, p. 21)

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

“The establishment of effective accountability mechanisms was crucial, not only because it accompanied a boost in indicators of legitimacy, but also because such mechanisms promoted police accountability to a prominent position in public discourse and facilitated the political prioritization of police reform.” (Bunnell, 2022, p. 22)
