Victim/Survivor Survey

​Wilder Research is working on a project to understand what victims/survivors go through during the criminal court process in order to inform positive change.

Anyone 18 years or older with experience as a victim/survivor of any crime in any Minnesota criminal court is eligible for the survey and can also have an opportunity to take part in a 20-30 minute interview. The confidential survey is open through November 2018.

People who complete the survey will have an opportunity to win a $50 gift card to  Target, Walmart, or a gas station by leaving their contact information at the end of the survey. Those who are selected for and complete an interview will receive a $20 gift card to thank them for their time.

Please contact Lindsay Turner, Wilder Research, at lindsay.turner@wilder.org or 651-280-2672 with any questions. Those wishing to participate in an interview without taking the survey are invited to reach out directly to Lindsay.

Project Safe Neighborhood

​Reducing violent crime is a top priority for the U.S. Justice Department.

As part of Project Safe Neighborhood (PSN), Minnesota received more than $400,000 in funding to combat violent crime.

The U.S. Attorney District of Minnesota is working with the Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs (DPS-OJP) to distribute the funds.

A portion of the funding will be dedicated to the City of Minneapolis to help reduce gang and gun violence through its Group Violence Intervention (GVI) strategy. Funding will also be set aside for other jurisdictions that are seeing an uptick in violence and are interested in developing locally-based solutions, in partnership with the federal government.

Additional information for jurisdictions interested in applying will be available in the coming months through the DPS-OJP.
