Oklahoma Public Safety Opinion Survey

This brief highlights findings from a public safety opinion survey showing that Oklahoma voters support public safety strategies that keep their communities safe and hold people accountable. They believe this can be achieved by focusing resources on preventing violent crime, mandatory post-incarceration supervision, and substance use treatment. Voters prefer to strengthen the system through these alternative means rather than spending money solely on incarcerating more criminals.
