This revised code is a positive step toward implementing progressive public safety policies supported by most communities across America. We congratulate DC Justice Lab Executive Director Patrice Sulton and FWD.us on their effort to tackle a tough issue. This is a big win for advocates wishing to reimagine public safety and reform the criminal justice system.
Reimagining public safety remains an idea supported by a majority of American voters, and our data support the case. HIT Strategies partnered with Change Research to learn attitudes about approaches to public safety. Our work found that voters prefer funding non-police responders and social services over police budgets.
