This table shows that confidence in the police is significantly weaker in Texas than nationally, based on 1998 poll data. Moreover, some groups in Texas have notably less confidence in the police than others. Most starkly only about one in five black Texans has a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the police compared with more than half of whites. The difference between whites and all nonwhites including blacks is only somewhat less stark. There is also a notable income gap in confidence and a pronounced urban-rural divide. Low income and urban Texans are far less likely to have confidence in the police than higher income and suburban or rural Texans or even low income and urban populations elsewhere in the nation.
