The relationships between the police and the public are important, and specifically, the public confidence and trust of the police may foster increased satisfaction, cooperation, and crime reporting.  While studies have indicated that age and ethnicity influence satisfaction with the police and victimization reporting, studies often fail to take a gendered analysis of these issues.  Through the use of a survey methodology, the present study examines how gender influences satisfaction with the police and anticipated victimization reporting.
