A Survey of Community-Police Perceptions in Timor-Leste 2015 – Summary

In 2015, The Asia Foundation conducted its third nationwide survey of community-police perceptions. The survey aimed at gathering data, and tracking changes in the perceptions of community members, and of the police on security and police related issues as well as a follow-on survey conducted in 2008 and 2013. The survey also evaluates public opinion on the security sector performance and security environment in Timor-Leste. The survey interviewed a nationally representative sample of the general public, community leaders and members of the National Police of Timor-Leste. The survey oversampled in all 13 municipalities which provided representative data for all 13 municipalities, enabling inter-municipality comparison. The survey generates empirical data that can be used to respond to perceived challenges and to improve the effectiveness of the country’s security sector. The survey also establishes a baseline and measures changes in community-police relations over time. This provides a basis for evaluating activities designed to strengthen community-police cooperation.
