Your view of us is important
In 2011, the Greensboro Police Department commissioned a community survey designed to measure Greensboro residents’ perceptions of crime and safety, and perceptions about Greensboro Police. We used MarketWise Inc., which applied quantitative and qualitative market research methods to provide the City with an understanding of key issues.
At the beginning of 2013, we again commissioned MarketWise to repeat the survey to see if there have been any changes in important areas during the past two years. In 2015, we conducted a similar survey with Research Strategies Inc. View the survey results.
We value our relationships with community members and find great benefit in receiving impartial input on how the public views us. By examining our strengths and weaknesses, we can develop more effective strategies, better allocate resources, and implement best professional practices to improve our relationships with the community, reduce crime, and improve the quality of life in Greensboro.
We work hard to establish and maintain public trust and your feedback about how we are doing helps us serve you better.
- Did we do something to help you improve your quality of life? Let us know.
- Did our service fall short of your expectations? Let us know.
- What are the greatest public safety concerns in your neighborhood? We want to know.
