NIAGARA POLICE SERVICES BOARD  LAUNCHES COMMUNITY INPUT SURVEY

(ST. CATHARINES) – The Regional Municipality of Niagara Police Services Board is launching an initiative to seek public input through its 2015 Community Input Survey on Policing Services. The survey will solicit residents’ perceptions on safety, crime, community priorities, and police performance.

“Over the next six weeks, from August 17th to September 28th, members of the public are invited to participate in an on-line survey to provide their feedback on our police services,” said Police Services Board Chair Bob Gale. “This survey is being conducted by a third party consultant and is completely anonymous and confidential. It will allow the Board to understand the perceptions and opinions of the community on policing services in Niagara Region.”

In order to hear the voices of our communities, the Board wants to engage citizens from across the Region to take a comprehensive look at the business of policing. The Community Input Survey will ask respondents for their opinions on the level of crime in their neighbourhoods, their concerns and their feedback on services provided by our Service. The results of the survey will help to improve the quality of service and ensure the needs of Niagara residents are addressed. The information collected from the survey will assist the Police Services Board and the Niagara Regional Police Service in identifying public concerns and priorities for the upcoming 2016-2018 Business Plan.

Make your opinion count!

The Niagara Police Services Board values the views of all Niagara residents.
