In Conjunction with NYU, Announces New Community Survey Research
A new community survey was released today by the Ashland Police Department (APD). In partnership with the Ashland Culture of Peace Commission and BetaGov, the brief, 10-item survey does not collect identifying information so that responses can be honest and accurate.
Said Chief Tighe O’Meara, “The APD has long recognized that public safety is enhanced through strengthening relationships and engaging all members of the community. By issuing this survey and collecting the feedback, we can work even more closely with the community to ensure that our community is safe.”
Dr. Maureen Hillhouse, Associate Director of BetaGov, an initiative based at New York University, commented, “We look forward to conducting this research and surveying perspectives from Ashland community members.”
Added David Wick, Executive Director, Ashland Culture of Peace Commission, “As an evolving City of Peace, this survey can shed helpful light on Chief O’Meara’s focus on improved community relationships. This is an important component of the broader Culture of Peace desired in Ashland.”
All members of the community are encouraged to participate in this survey, which can be found on the department’s webpage, as well as at the website www.ashlandpd.com
. Hard copies of the survey can also be picked up and turned in at the police department located at 1155 E. Main Street.
