It will take approximately 5 minutes of your time and is completely confidential. Your participation will help the Village Police Department to improve services, processes, and reputation.
The survey is designed for the Village Police Department to gather opinions and experiences from members of the community. The survey addresses 5 key components that involve the Village Police Department: Community Involvement, Safety, Procedural Justice, Performance, Contact and Satisfaction.
