Survey: Residents feel less safe downtown

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports today that fewer people feel safe downtown, particularly after dark, according to the latest annual survey from the Department of Tourism, Conventions and Event Management at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis. Seventy-five percent feel safe downtown compared to 83 percent two years earlier, the survey found. After dark, only 34 percent feel safe; that figure declined from 44 percent in the 2005 survey. However, most respondents gave the city high marks for cleanliness, friendly people and cultural attractions.
