Baseline and Follow-Up Surveys
Surveys can be a cost-effective tool to gather information from multiple stakeholders (e.g., internal agency personnel, crime victims, community members, community partners). Demographics, attitudes, victimization impact, access to victim services, and other key factors can be captured. Survey anonymity may encourage participant openness and honesty. Conducting follow-up surveys can help monitor progress and identify ongoing needs. Agencies can adapt these survey templates to gather vital information and support ELERV Strategy implementation.
These templates are intended to provide sample language and content. These templates should be customized to fit agency needs and should be carefully reviewed to ensure information is consistent with requirements within the agency and local jurisdiction.
