RI Public Safety Planning Survey

RI Public Safety Planning Survey 

The Rhode Island Public Safety Grant Administration Office (PSGAO) is currently writing a comprehensive statewide strategic plan to guide decisions made throughout the state’s criminal legal system. The US Department of Justice requires all states and territories to submit a strategic plan every five years in order to access specific allocations of federal grant money.  

By taking this survey and sharing input based on your expertise and/or lived experience, you can help the PSGAO identify areas where the criminal legal system is successful and where it may fall short. This will allow us to create an inclusive and effective strategic plan to prioritize how we use federal grant money over the next five years.   

In Rhode Island, the criminal legal system includes state and local governments, courts, prosecutors, law enforcement, corrections, public defenders, services for survivors of crimes, juvenile programs, and reentry services as well as community service providers that focus on issues like behavioral and mental health, substance use disorders, job training, and housing. 

If you are a Rhode Islander who considers yourself a member of any of the following groups, you are encouraged to take this survey: 

  • People who are or have been system-involved 
  • Survivors of crime and/or violence  
  • People who have received support services or assistance from a government agency or community-based organization  
  • Individuals who work in the criminal legal system as it is defined above 

This survey should take you less than ten minutes to complete. Answers to the survey are confidential and anonymous.

The survey will be open until 11:59 pm on Sunday, April 30, 2024.
