[Infographic] Democratic policing - a conceptual framework (English)

What is democratic policing? Is it the same as policing in a democracy? Do we know what we can expect from the police? What builds trust in the police, and what erodes it? To investigate these and related questions, ACJR did extensive research on democratic policing and developed a conceptual framework to set out what the input variables, outputs and outcomes should be to attain the ultimate result, namely a police service that enjoys legitimacy. Nine interrelated and mutually reinforcing dimensions are distinguished to produce the result of democratic policing, which is at least three things: the police uphold and protect the rule of law; the police are accountable, and the police work in service of the public in a procedurally fair manner.
