Słowa kluczowe:security, the dynamics of a sense of security, European Social Survey, Poland
The problem undertaken in this article is the sense of security in Poland over the period 2002 - 2014. The article comprises a methodological part, in which the author presents the way of carrying out the European Social Survey (ESS) in Poland as well as it describes the methodology applied for this study. The subsequent part illustrates the analysis of the results of the research on the sense of security, on the basis of the following criteria: sex, the area of residence, the experience of being attacked, trust towards the Police and other people. Nearly half of the people who experienced an attack in the last five years or people being close to them, feel threatened in their area of living. Studies show that trust towards the Police influences the sense of security of the Poles – the respondents feel less endangered, if their trust in the Police is higher. The results of the research conducted by ESS show, that the sense of security has increased throughout the last twelve years, and the region of living affects the sense of security. The conclusion of the article reveals that results of the research confirm the hypothesis which the author assumed.
