Abstract

Arrestee populations are underrepresented in the procedural justice literature. This study examines a sample of 337 arrestees in Arizona who have been interviewed as a part of the AARIN project. Descriptive statistics and regression analysis are used to examine views of the procedural justice experienced by arrestees during arrest, perceptions of police legitimacy by arrestees, voluntary compliance to the law, and voluntary cooperation with police. Results of the study show that perceptions of legitimacy work through procedural justice, and that procedurally just interactions with police mediate the use of force and ethnicity effects on views of legitimacy.
