A new survey offers some key insights into the court of public opinion

Sep 29, 2021

By Suzie Ziegler 

DENVER — A survey of 3,000 U.S. citizens has found that most Americans don’t support defunding the police and nearly half want police to have more training, according to Veritone, Inc, an AI software company. 

Veritone released its findings Tuesday with its first-ever Transparency and Trust Report. The project focused on measuring the relationship between police agencies and the communities they serve, as well as broader public opinion on policing. 

Here are some of the key takeaways, according to the report: 

  • 3 out of 4 Americans say police help them feel safe in their communities 

  • 67% of respondents said law enforcement agencies are widely trusted by their communities 

  • 44% of respondents want police to increase funding for unconscious bias training 

  • 1 in 5 people support defunding the police 

  •  42% percent of respondents felt a lack of transparency has hurt their perception of law enforcement 

The report also heard from officers themselves, 62% of which indicated that being a local officer has become more difficult over the past five years.
