The study of immigrants’ perceptions of the police cannot move significantly forward unless more explicit and encompassing theory can be formulated and tested. This chapter systematically reviews the existing research literature that compares attitudes toward the police across minority groups, and more importantly, innovatively proposes a theoretical framework that can help explain group differential views on the police between immigrants and non-immigrants and among immigrant groups. A number of existing and new theoretical perspectives are first organized by the two sources of influence that immigrant attitudes toward the police are subject to: universal factors that shape all residents’ attitudes toward the police, and group-specific factors that only apply to foreign-born individuals. Then within both universal and immigrant-specific factors, there are four subcategories of demographic, experiential, structural, and attitudinal variables. This chapter ends with a discussion of directions for future research.
