Police Requests for Compliance: Coercive and Procedurally Just Tactics

Synopsis

Taking the newer approach of focusing on citizen actions as a dependent variable rather than as an explanation of police-client interactions, McClosky (criminal justice, Michigan State U.) studies situational factors determining compliance with police requests for identification and self-control. Implications for policy, procedures, and future research are discussed based on the findings that justice- seeking<-->perception of request legitimacy, police respect, and impartiality<-->rather than coercion informs compliance. Appends methodological notes. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
