Public Attitudes on Crime and Punishment in Georgia

According to a poll conducted by the Pew Center for on the States, Public Opinion Strategies, and the Mellman Group, Georgia voters want a public safety system that holds criminals accountable and keeps communities safe. They believe such a system is possible while reducing the size and scope of the prison system, and they strongly support reinvesting prison savings into alternatives.

Georgia voters, across party lines, support specific policies that would divert offenders from prison, shorten prison terms, and strengthen community supervision.
