Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to determine through statistical analysis any relationship between public perceptions of public safety after the implementation of AB 109, and the variables of age and gender for San Diego County. Sixty-eight participants answered two-survey instrument, the Public Perceptions on Implementation of AB 109 Scale (PPIS) and a demographic instrument. The resulting data were obtained from 68 purposively selected citizens in San Diego County. The study findings revealed statistical significant relationship between public perceptions of public safety and age. The study findings did not indicate a significant relationship between public perceptions of public safety and gender. The focus of this study was to contribute to the literature by exploring perceptions of public safety regarding AB 109 from the public perspective, a population not included in previous research.
