Abstract

This is a study of public perception of face to face encounters with the police during the most common type of police contact, the traffic stop. Using the latest iteration of the Police-Public Contact Survey, (ICPSR 34276), this study examines the public’s perception interactions of law enforcement, the effect of enforcement action in the form of a citation, officer behaviors, and citizen behaviors on the reported perception of the traffic stop. Perception of the face to face encounter with law enforcement is measured using survey responses to items regarding their encounter with police.
