More than half of Ukrainians do not know anything about their district police officer and three-quarters - about the chief of the district police department. This is evidenced by the results of a poll conducted among the Ukrainians in 2012 by the Kharkiv Institute for Social Research, ForUm correspondent reports.

Evaluating the work of police officers with the public, the majority of respondents indicated that they were treated politely - 64.5%. However, 24.9% experienced police indifference, and 9.3% - brutal treatment on part of the police officers.

In addition, the Kharkiv Institute for Social Research measured the level of confidence in such institutions as the Cabinet of Ministers, courts, prosecutor’s offices, Security Service of Ukraine, Parliament, etc.
According to the expert of the Institute Anfriy Chernousov, against traditionally low level of trust in public institutions, the police turned out to be in third place after the church and the army with an exponent of about 26%.

"Some of the respondents are willing to assist the police in any situation - 28%. More than 39% of people are willing to help only if they consider the situation safe for personal interests and the interests of their relatives and friends," the expert said.

Embodying the idea of an alternative system for the evaluation of police agencies in Ukraine, the Kharkiv Institute for Social Research in collaboration with the Interior Ministry and with the support of the Revival International Fund held Ukrainian pilot study "Evaluation of the police by the public opinion." 15.000 respondents in 349 settlements in all regions of Ukraine were surveyed.
