Pay close attention to the following noted excerpt. What steps would you recommend to promote police
“legitimacy” in all communities nationwide (conduct limited research if necessary to respond to this question:
“Legitimacy is linked to the ability of the police to prevent crime and keep neighborhoods safe. If the public’s
trust and confidence in the police is undermined, the ability of the police to prevent crime will be weakened by
lawsuits, declining willingness to obey the law, and withdrawal from existing partnerships (Tyler 1990, 2004).
The political fallout from illegitimate police actions can seriously impede the ability of police departments to
engage innovative crime control tactics.”
