The Rochester Police Department issued a Request for Proposals seeking a company to perform a survey of residents to “measure opinion of our public safety resources.” The company will work with the department on developing questions and identifying areas of concern.
The survey comes after the mayor and police chief held several forums with the public about violence.
I bet this survey will be used in part to support going back to a quadrant policing model. Chief Jim Sheppard has said he’d like to do away with the two-sections and have four sections, as well as a downtown policing district.
What do you think the department should ask in this survey and do with the results?
