New National Polling Data on Different Approaches to Public Safety in America

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 this webinar, researchers present findings of new nationwide public opinion poll of likely voters on their views of various approaches to addressing public safety issues. The results are expected to include data on voter’s views on police, crisis response, 911 dispatch, and community violence intervention strategies, among others. The presenters will also discuss the challenges that lie ahead as communities continue to grapple with how to improve public safety while working to minimize the potential harms of the justice system.

This webinar is part of the monthly Lunch & Learn webinar series launched in August of 2020 to highlight emerging research on gun violence through the Gun Violence Prevention & Justice Reform Program.
