The Town of Grand Island is inviting residents to take a brief survey that asks them about their experiences with the Grand Island Police Department and their perceptions of crime in the community. The survey covers five key areas: community involvement, performance, safety, contact and satisfaction, and procedural justice. (Living on Grand Island, you may come into contact with multiple law enforcement agencies, but please answer the questions thinking only about the Grand Island Police Department).
All residents are encouraged to take this confidential survey and offer their honest and genuine feedback about how the department is doing. The responses will be analyzed by Niagara University, and the results will be made available to the public and presented in a town hall meeting in fall, 2023. The results of the confidential survey will help the department more effectively allocate agency resources, provide additional services, and identify areas of training. The ultimate goal is to strengthen and further improve relationships between the police department and the community.
The survey should take no more than ten minutes to complete. Surveys can be accessed and completed electronically at this link https://niagara.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eJ6HxNVQdMkydaS or by using the QR Code found below. The survey can also be found via the Grand Island Town Web Site (https://www.grandislandny.us/) and various social media sites including isledegrande.com and Grand Ideas for Grand Island. In addition, paper copies of the survey will be available at various locations around Grand Island including the Grand Island Police station, Grand Island Library and the Grand Island Town Hall, Clerk’s office. Completed paper surveys can be dropped off at the Clerk’s Office or drop-box at Town Hall.
