August 15, 2023 The Michigan Daily

The University of Michigan Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy and Poverty Solutions with the Ford School of Public Policy will launch a study to evaluate attitudes toward certain criminal justice reforms by polling the local government officials of 1,856 villages, townships, cities and counties across the state. The project will build on the Michigan Public Policy Survey, which currently surveys county prosecutors, sheriffs and city police chiefs in addition to local government officials.
