      A sample of 1,772 adult residents of the Municipality of Anchorage participated in a survey conducted by the Justice Center in late 2007 — the second in a series of biannual surveys of the Anchorage municipality. The full report, contained in The Anchorage Community Survey, 2007, provides one of the most detailed pictures available of community attitudes within the network of communities forming the Anchorage municipality, containing information on the demographics of residents, their perceptions of the life in their neighborhoods, social activities and organizations, and their satisfaction with various municipal and government functions, including policing. This volume presents those results of particular relevance to the Anchorage Police Department on racism, violence, community disorder, fear of crime, satisfaction with police services, police effectiveness, and contact with police. Results are presented in summary form for the entire municipality and also by community council area.
