In 2011, SST commissioned research to gain an independent understanding of New Zealander’s attitudes towards crime and prison sentences.

The specific information collected in this Poll included the perceptions of New Zealanders towards:

  • Length of prison sentences for violent crime
  • Levels of violent crime over time
  • Youth offending punishment levels
  • Recording of DNA for arrests
