A new survey from Gallup poll shows a majority of Black Americans want police to increase or spend the same amount of time in their neighborhoods. 61% want police to remain the same, similar to the 67% of all U.S. adults preferring the status quo, including 71% of White Americans. 20% would like to see more time, while 19% would like to see less time spent in neighborhoods. These findings are from a June 23-July 6 Gallup Panel survey conducted as part of the newly launched Gallup Center on Black Voices.
Of these four racial/ethnic groups, Asian Americans are the most likely to want less police presence where they live, with 28% saying this. That contrasts with 12% of White Americans, 17% of Hispanic Americans and 19% of Black Americans.”
