Community Policing and Public Trust: A Field Experiment in Uganda

Principal Investigators: Guy Grossman, Robert Blair, Ben Kachero, Anna Wilke

Research Design: Our research design combines the Muyenga model of community policing with advanced training in child protection and prevention of domestic violence for Ugandan police officers. The unit of randomization is the parish (covering 3-10 nearby villages). The unit of analysis for most outcomes is the individual. Randomization proceeds in two stages. First, two sub-counties in each district will be randomly assigned to treatment, for a total of 24 sub-counties (that have at least 4 parishes each).
