The aim of this study (2012) is to investigate the relationship between the sense of security and trust. This research is based on the theoretical approach of Giddens. Giddens believes that the new world has brought about non-reassuring and unsecured situation. So trust will provide the formation of security and if trust is not grown, it will be fears and feelings of security. Target population of this research included all Arak citizens. Technique of data collection is based on questionnaire. Sampling method is stratified random and sample size is 400. In this article, sense of security is measured in the four dimensions of financial, physical, intellectual and collective and the relationship of each of these dimensions are measured separately with trust variable.
The results of this study indicate that there is a significant relationship between trust and sense of security. Since generalized trust has a stronger statistical correlation with sense of security in comparison with other dimensions, the proposed solutions for increase social trust are provided in order to increase the sense of security.
