Each person working on this project will be wearing the approved Urban Institute badge.

The Urban Institute is an independent research group based out of Washington D.C. attached to the National Initiative project. The Institute is conducting door-to-door surveys of community members in the six National Initiative (NI) cities, hiring local field interviewers in partnership with local community organizations.

Members of the Urban Institute will be spread throughout the city of Fort Worth conducting baseline community surveys. The surveys will take place January 5-12 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Twelve locally-hired interviewers will conduct the surveys in person (teams of two) at randomly pre-selected households throughout the city. Each person working on this project will be wearing the approved Urban Institute badge and has undergone a background check. They are authorized by the City of Fort Worth.

The survey takes between 30-45 minutes to complete and is administered to randomly-selected households, pre-determined by Urban researchers. Any adult (18+ years old) present in the selected household may take the in-person survey.

Participation is completely voluntary and responses are kept strictly confidential.

The information from the surveys will be critical to understanding what enhances trust between the justice system and the community.
