Talking Points: Race and Policing

  • A Gallup survey conducted in the summer of 2020 found that 81 percent of blacks want the police to spend either more time or the same amount of time in their area. 
  • In April 2021, 65 percent of black likely voters told the liberal think tank Data for Progress that regular police patrols in their neighborhood would make them feel safer. 
  • Likewise, in a Detroit Metro Area Communities Study survey conducted in June and July 2021, 45 percent of black Detroiters said that an increased police presence in their neighborhood would make them feel safer, while only 8 percent said it would make them feel less safe. 
  • A September 2021 Minnesota Poll of registered, likely voters in Minneapolis, which showed that 75 percent of blacks oppose reducing the size of the city’s police force.
