Bulgarians want more police on the streets

Date: 25.02.2006

More police in the streets is what the majority of Bulgarians want, according to a nation-wide survey conducted by the National Public Opinion Centre (NPOC) among a thousand people at the beginning of February.

Fifty six percent of the polled are convinced that more police on the streets lessens the openly aggressive behavior of bandits in public places.

Half the Bulgarians believe that the so called Respect Operation has set up a permanent positive tendency in combating crime. This opinion is mostly shared by upper middle-class active people but also by representatives of more marginalized social strata.

NPOC has also registered that 46% of those interviewed agree to have limited civil rights against more security as 60% feel insecure and worry about their safety.

Half the Bulgarians are convinced that for the last couple of months the Ministry of Interior's efforts have produced results in combating street crime; 37% see as successful police efforts against drugs pushers and smugglers. Yet, police efforts against corruption fail to meet the public's expectations. One tenth of the interviewed said that either they themselves or their family has been asked for a bribe for the last year.
