Neighborhood Surveysupdated: Tuesday, August 18, 2015
To identify problems and track trends, the Police Department routinely surveys one of its four patrol districts each year. These surveys ask residents to respond to questions about the quality of their neighborhood, livability issues and safety concerns. With the information gained from these voluntary surveys, officers tackle the most chronic problems identified by survey respondents. These can be safety problems or simply chronic 'livability' problems such as loud parties, barking dogs, problem neighbors or speeding cars. Patrol districts are surveyed on a rotating basis so each district is surveyed every two years. (For related information, click on Patrol.)
The next neighborhood surveys will be conducted in Fall 2015.
