Abstract [en]

Uniformed presence is commonly thought to create feelings of safety in people.However, do differently uniformed people contribute to an equal amount of safety and arethere situation-dependent differences? The present study examined the association betweenvarious types of uniformed presence and people’s feelings of safety through a questionnaireamong 352 respondents (18–86 years) (49.1 % women). The questionnaire contained picturesof situations perceived as relatively safe and unsafe with or without uniformed presence. Therespondents estimated how safe they thought they would feel in these situations with nouniformed presence, two police officers, six police officers, a police vehicle, two securityguards, or two police volunteers. Results showed that uniformed presence did not increasefeelings of safety in a situation perceived as relatively safe, making patrol unnecessary. Insituations perceived as relatively unsafe however, all types of uniformed presence increasedfeelings of safety. Foot patrolling police contributed to the greatest increase in feelings ofsafety. Security guards and police volunteers created similar amounts of feelings of safetymaking police volunteers a cost-effective alternative. All types of foot patrol were better thanvehicle patrol, making non-police groups an alternative to vehicle patrol. Some situational,gender, and age differences were found.

Abstract [en]

Uniformed presences are thought to create feelings of safety in people. However, do different uniformed people contribute to the same amount of safety and are there differences dependent on the situation? The present study examined the association between various types of uniformed presence and people’s feelings of safety through a questionnaire among 352 respondents (18-86 years) (49.1 % women). The questionnaire contained pictures of relatively safe and unsafe situations with or without uniformed presence. The respondents estimated how safe they thought they would feel in these situations with and without two police officers, six police officers, a police car, two security guards, or two police volunteers. The results showed that uniformed presence does not increase feelings of safety in an already relatively safe situation, making patrol unnecessary. In relatively unsafe situations however, all types of uniformed presence increase feelings of safety. Foot patrolling police increased feelings of safety the most. Security guards and police volunteers created approximately the same amount of safety; making police volunteers a cost-effective alternative, although some situation, gender and age differences were found. All types of foot patrol were better than vehicle patrol (with some gender differences), making non-police groups an alternative to vehicle patrol.

Abstract [en]

With new technology new possibilities emanate that can be cost and time effective. The present study examined the differences between face-to-face interrogation, telephone interrogation and chat interrogation when hearing witnesses of crime. The main purpose was to see if there were any differences in number of correct memories, number of incorrect memories and number of incorrect answers to misleading questions depending on method of interrogation used. The study involved a total of appr. 180 participants between ages 18 and 70 years (appr. 50% females and 50% males). Participants were randomly assigned to six different equally large groups: three groups watched a video of a violent crime and were then interrogated using one out of the three methods, face-to-face, by phone or by chat. The other three groups watched a video of a property crime and were then interrogated using one of the three interrogation methods. The analyses will focus on investigating whether there are any significant differences in number of correct memories, number of incorrect memories and number of incorrect answers to misleading questions depending on method of interrogation used. Practical implications for police work will be discussed.
