New Data from IL on Different Approaches to Public Safety

Share

In recent years, crime and public safety has become a top issue of concern among policy makers, researchers, advocates, and communities. Increases in crime, in particular shootings and homicides, have put urgent pressure on policy makers to develop and find solutions to this crisis, leading many to suggest that a broader reimagining of public safety may be necessary.

In April of this year, The Joyce Foundation released a national public opinion research project exploring the public’s views of, and reaction to, different ways of addressing public safety beyond traditional policing. Conducted by Lake Research Partners, and The Tarrance Group between January 30 - February 9, 2023, the project included a national survey, demographic oversamples of Black and Latinx voters, and state oversamples in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan.

During this briefing, researchers Celinda Lake and Brian Nienaber presented data specific to the state of Illinois. The results include data on Illinois voters’ views on police, crisis response, 911 dispatch, and community violence intervention strategies, among others. Watch the full recording below.
