Gainesville Police ask for citizen input via survey

By Alyson Shields Reporter

As the Gainesville Police Department prepares for re-accreditation, the department wants input from citizens through an anonymous survey.

The survey will ask about citizens' attitudes and opinions regarding Gainesville PD's correcting actions, practices, attitudes, community relations, tensions and grievances, and the agency's commitment to the job.

The goal is to establish feedback regarding the professional delivery of police services in the community, as well as develop the information for re-accreditation of the agency through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.

"As a police department, it is imperative that we keep open channels of communication with the community and citizens in which we serve and protect," said Chief Jay Parrish. "The community's response to this survey will aid us in better assisting the citizens we proudly serve."

Citizens may take the survey in English or Spanish at this link. It is also on the Gainesville Police website. All answers are anonymous unless the user chooses to offer their personal information.

When the survey is completed, the results will be published in the department's annual report.
