dc.description.abstractThis study explores the potential links between crime-related media consumption and confidence in the police based on the instrumental and expressive models. Drawing on data from a large sample of South Koreans, direct and indirect effects of crime-related media consumption on perceptions of police are examined using a regression-based multiple mediation analysis. Results showed that while there is no direct effect of media consumption on confidence in the police, crime-related media consumption is significantly and negatively associated with public confidence in the police via perceived incivilities and fear of crime. This study suggests that the police should make a constant effort to develop strategies to enhance communication with the public.en_US
