Police Requests for Compliance

Coercive and Procedurally Just Tactics

Rate this:
Using observational data from two metropolitan police departments, McCluskey studies citizen compliance with police requests for self-control in face-to-face encounters. The central question is whether coercive tactics (e.g. commanding a suspect) or "procedurally just" tactics (e.g. giving a suspect the opportunity to tell his or her side of the situation) are more powerful in explaining citizen's decisions to comply with police requests. A series of multivariate logistic models indicate that the "justness" of police tactics has the greatest power in explaining why citizens comply with police requests for self-control.
