The public’s perception of police is impacted by attire and other factors, a recent study found. The Irvine Police Department (IPD) partnered with University of California, Irvine doctoral candidate Rylan Simpson to examine how attire and patrol strategy esthetics impact people’s perceptions of the police. Simpson’s Police Officer Perception Project, or P.O.P.P., was published in the Journal of Experimental Criminology, with a second article featured in Policing: A Journal of Policy and Practice.

For his study, Simpson presented images of police officers in different attire and engaged in different patrol strategies (i.e., in a patrol car, on foot, on a bicycle). The subjects were not aware of what researchers were studying when they viewed the images. Participants were asked to describe the officers seen in the images as “aggressive,” “approachable,” “friendly,” “respectful” and/or “accountable.”

Participants expressed relatively positive perceptions of the police, said Simpson, who is part of UC Irvine’s Department of Criminology, Law and Society. However, their perceptions were influenced by the factors Simpson studied. Generally, police officers are perceived more favorably when presented in police uniform than when they are in street clothes.

“Merely observing police officers in different attire produces substantial variation in perceptions of them. Like laboratory coats in academia, white coats in medicine, and robes in law, uniforms are important symbols of legitimacy in policing,” Simpson said.

Study participants also responded more favorably to police who were on foot or who were riding a bicycle, versus those in a police car, Simpson found. Additionally, officers wearing sunglasses or black gloves or those carrying batons were seen more negatively, whereas those wearing high visibility vests were seen more favorably.

The partnership between the Irvine Police Department and UC Irvine on this study was emphasized by Chief Mike Hamel.

“The ability for law enforcement practitioners to partner with researchers is extremely important. When Police Departments and institutions of higher education collaborate, such as the relationship we have with UC Irvine, there is great potential to answer many important questions about the criminal justice system and the nature of policing, with the ultimate goal of providing better service and enhancing our credibility,” said Hamel, who is also a graduate of UC Irvine.

On Monday, the Irvine Police Department kicked off its first ever
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class taught in Mandarin. The program is the first of its kind in the state and is believed to be the first in the nation.

The goal of CERT is to provide private citizens with the basic skills needed to protect themselves, their family, and neighbors, and to respond to the immediate needs of the community in the aftermath of a disaster when emergency services are not readily available. The City of Irvine has more than 2,000 CERT members who participate in an array of events, from training exercises to aiding in the search for missing persons.

The Irvine PD Emergency Management Unit saw a need to expand upon this training to include the City’s growing Mandarin-speaking population. The Emergency Management team utilized existing staff, including a Mandarin-speaking Public Safety Assistant who became a Certified CERT instructor, to develop
this program. The extensive CERT training manual was translated into Mandarin and presentations were prepared in Mandarin. Irvine PD Officers who speak the language are also an integral part of the program.

“After many months of planning, it was so exciting to see our Mandarin CERT program kick off last night. Irvine PD staff have invested countless hours over the past six months to make this program possible for our Chinese community, and seeing the enthusiasm of the participants only validated for us how important this was,” said Emergency Management Administrator Bobby Simmons.

The inaugural class contains 50 Irvine residents who came to the Civic Center Monday night for the first of eight classes in the course. Classes are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings. The course contains classroom-style instruction and hands-on training. Topics covered include Disaster Operations, Fire Suppression, Light Search & Rescue and more. The class graduates May 2 after a final exercise at Orange County Fire Authority headquarters.
