dc.description.abstract Historically, there has been a severe lack of data on who California’s crime victims are, what they need to recover from crime and their opinions about our state’s justice priorities. To begin filling this gap in research, Californians for Safety and Justice commissioned the first-ever survey of California crime victims. David Binder Research fielded the California Crime Victims Survey in April 2013, polling more Executive than 2,600 Californians who were broadly representative of California’s population with respect to race, ethnicity, age and gender. Of those, 500 identified as having been a victim of crime in the last five years, and these respondents answered 61 questions regarding their experiences and perspectives. This report describes the findings of this survey and points to opportunities for further research and reforms to improve victim recovery. Among the findings, it may be surprising to some that California victims – even when profoundly impacted by their experience with crime – overwhelmingly favor a system that focuses on rehabilitation rather than incarceration.
