Survey: Six of 10 citizens trust the police

NEARLY 60 percent of citizens trust the Slovak police, which represents a 5.7 percent rise from a similar survey carried out one year ago.

A poll conducted by the Slovak Statistics Office in October this year on a sampling of 1,295 respondents also showed that apart from the finding that 59.1 percent Slovaks have confidence in their police officers, people also feel much safer. As many as 68.3 percent of those polled said they felt safe in their areas thanks to the police, a figure that is up 10.1 percentage points year-on-year, Hospodárske noviny wrote.

Citizens are also increasingly more satisfied with the work of police officers. More than a half of the
respondents (58.8 percent) feel satisfied with the job done by the police forces. The higher trust in police is reflected in a willingness to cooperate with the police.
