Police Department opens community survey

The Brighton Police Department is interested in hearing from community members about their perception of the department.  In accordance with Sir Robert Peel’s Nine Principles of Policing, Chief Paul Southard believes the department cannot do its job without the input and trust of its community; he feels two principles in particular are especially meaningful in the year 2017, just as they were when they were written in 1829.

Principle Number Two: “To recognize always that the power of the police to fulfil their functions and duties is dependent on public approval of their existence, actions and behavior, and on their ability to secure and maintain public respect”.

Principle Number Seven: “To maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence”.

The department has opened an online survey which will be available for citizen input until Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Community surveys have been recommended and encouraged by the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, May 2015.

To participate in the survey, please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZH36DRQ .
