The IPF Citizen Satisfaction Survey on SMART Policing, 2021, is an effort by Indian Police Foundation (IPF) to gauge public perceptions about the quality of policing in India and the level of public trust in the police. This would be the first of a series of annual, longitudinal surveys that the IPF intends to conduct, to obtain an evidence-based understanding of the ground realities of how India’s citizens perceive the police.


Survey Report

IPF identified six competency-based dimensions and three values-based dimensions of trust. Thus, the survey framework comprised two sets of indicators of SMART policing as dimensions of public trust in policing, one set to gauge perceptions about core professional competencies and the other, to assess the perceived adherence to core values and ethical principles.
