Poll administered by YouGov, commissioned by Austin Justice Coalition.
The Austin Justice Coalition today released an opinion poll showing strong support for police budget cuts, and especially for cutting all the currently unfilled positions and police overtime.
The Austin public strongly supports alternatives to police for mental health first response, substance abuse, and homelessness and an end to the war on drugs. In addition, there is overwhelming support for an independent crime lab and for improved services for survivors of crime.
