Crime Survivors Speak Report

The Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance would like to share a recent report from the Alliance for Safety and Justice. This is the first-ever national survey of victims views on crime and safety.

Two of the most interesting outcomes of the study were: (1) By a 2 to 1 margin, victims prefer that the criminal justice system focus more on rehabilitating people who commit crimes than punishing them. (2) Crime victims want to invest in youth crime prevention over prisons by a 7 to 1 margin.
