Abstract
Public confidence in the police is essential for effective law enforcement, and police agencies rely on community engagement and information from the public in order to function effectively. It is therefore important that police maintain high levels of reported victim satisfaction. Victim satisfaction is affected by a number of factors, including whether the crime was solved, however their prior expectations are perhaps the most important predictor of satisfaction. There is a body of literature which has demonstrated that members of the public (both jurors and victims) have unrealistically high expectations about forensic science, and this paper describes a series of studies investigating how these expectations may affect reported satisfaction with the Scene of Crime Officer response to reported incidents. The theoretical basis for these studies is the application of the ?expectancy disconfirmation? paradigm to the forensic examination of crime scenes, which has been used for many years to explain consumer satisfaction in other domains.
