Mayor's Office Posts Online Survey To Gather Input On Public Safety

The City of Seattle is conducting a public opinion survey to gather input on public safety and the Seattle Police Department.from Seattle residents.

The information in the survey has to do with residents public safety concerns in their own neighborhoods and on public transportation.

The study was drafted and is being conducted by graduate students from the Evans School of Public Affairs at the University of Washington on behalf of the Mayor's Office. Students from the School will deliver paper copies of the survey to targeted locations, and "will actively solicit responses from traditionally underrepresented communities," the press release says.

"Your answers will help police and city officials provide effective and responsive police services. No identifying information will be collected and you may choose to skip any questions you do not want to answer or do not know the answer to," the Seattle Government website says.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. 

Evans School students will do an analysis of initial responses by May and then present their analysis to the mayor's Youth and Families Initiative subcabinet in mid-May.
