Gainesville Police seeking community's input for re-accreditation

By Austin Eller News Director

The Gainesville Police Department has asked for input from the community as the agency approaches re-accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.

According to a press release from the agency, a survey is being conducted about citizens' attitudes and opinions in keeping with the agency's "commitment to correcting actions, practices and attitudes that may contribute to community tensions and grievances."

The Gainesville Police Department said feedback can help the agency continue to strive to provide professional police services to the City of Gainesville.

The short survey can be found here. It is available in English and Spanish. Responses will remain anonymous unless you indicate otherwise by providing your name and address. The surveys will be tabulated and the results will be published in the agency's annual report.

“It is imperative the police department keep open channels of communication with the citizens in which we strive to serve and protect," Chief Jay Parrish said. "The citizen’s response to this survey will aid us in better assisting the community we are proud to serve."
