Sample Community Surveys
Community surveys can be used to collect information about the public’s perception of your law enforcement agency and promote ways that the agency listens and responds to community opinions and concerns. In addition to being a measure of police performance, community surveys can be used to analyze how police deliver services and help decide if the allocation of resources needs to change. Adapt these surveys to suit your community's needs.
Listed below are sample community surveys to assist in the assessment of neighborhood conditions, community and police performance, and local program outcomes.
