Town of Essex Seeking Feedback on Community Policing
The Town of Essex is currently seeking feedback from residents on their experiences and perceptions of the quality of policing within the community.
Like many municipalities in Ontario, the Town currently receives policing services through a contract with the Ontario Provincial Police. Results from the survey will be provided to Town Council for consideration.
“This is an opportunity for citizens to be heard and to provide their feedback on how they feel about policing,” said Councillor Kim Verbeek. “The responses and comments provided will give Council important information as we consider the future of policing within our community.”
The 5-10 minute survey asks respondents to reflect on their perceptions of three categories relevant to local policing: general satisfaction, interactions with police, and community safety. The survey also provides an opportunity for respondents to provide comments related to each category.
Citizens can fill out the survey online at www.essex.ca/PolicingSurvey.
Submissions will be accepted until Friday, June 12. Survey responses are limited to one per resident. Only responses from individuals who reside in the Town of Essex will be considered.
