Public Safety Studies
Better Together’s examination of Public Safety focuses on three key areas of study:
Our studies on municipal courts examine the issues of court oversight, the use (and misuse) of court fines and fees, the need for access to open courts, and the importance of clarifying defendants’ rights.
Our studies on policing provide insight into how the 60 departments in St. Louis City and County provide police services to the region.
Our studies on fire protection examine the provision of fire protection and emergency medical services to the region.
