Description

Because public opinion is an important factor in shaping criminal justice policy, the Crime and Justice Institute partnered with Doble Research Associates to conduct a nonpartisan public opinion study to explore the views of Massachusetts and Boston residents on a range of criminal justice policies. This study specifically sought to determine how much public support exists for evidence-based practices that criminal justice research has shown to be most effective in reducing criminal behavior.
