Summary

Within the framework of the OSCE Police Assistance Program (PAP), a Community Police Pilot Unit (hereinafter Arabkir Local Police Unit) has been established within the structure of the Arabkir Police Department of the Yerevan City Police Administration of the ROA Police. The Turpanjian Center for Policy Analysis (TCPA) at the American University of Armenia (AUA) was contracted to conduct a follow-up public opinion survey to evaluate and measure the performance of the Arabkir Local Police Unit. In order to have a baseline measurement, a previous survey was carried out in March 2008 prior to establishment of this Unit in the same neighborhood in the Arabkir Administrative Districts 18 and 19. The purpose of this public opinion survey is to evaluate and measure the performance of the Arabkir Local Police Unit, and, where possible, to compare the current public opinion towards the police with the results of the previous public opinion survey in order to determine how public opinion towards the police has changed with the establishment of the Unit.
