Abstract
The aim of the present study is partially to describe to what extent individuals have confidence in the police and the criminal justice system. Additionally, we aim to gain insight in some key determinants of the lack of confidence using hierarchical multilevel analyses. We test to what extent these determinants are similar for both institutions. Our empirical model examines the effects of social trust, violent crime, economic disadvantage and ethnic heterogeneity as municipality level characteristics, past local victimization experience, fear of crime, ethnocentrism, anomia, perceived disorder, general trust and life 11th Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology Other Criminological Issues satisfaction as individual characteristics. The results are based on the ‘Social Cohesion Indicators in Flanders Survey’, a 2009 survey of 2,080 residents from 40 municipalities in Flanders (Belgium).
