Community Survey -


Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) Announces Community Survey
The purpose of the community survey is to help gauge public trust. When completed, the report will offer a set of recommendations to strengthen public trust and confidence in law enforcement in communities across Michigan. The goal is to determine how residents and law enforcement can work together to make local communities safe and secure.
A short survey is now available online for residents to comment on how to advance police-community relations in their area. All communities are not the same and local residents have unique issues and concerns that need to be addressed. To learn more about MCOLES and to read the full press release from the Governor's office, click here or on the file link below.
To take the survey online, visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ExeDir2016-2. The link will remain open until March 20, 2017.
MCOLES also has established a special e-mail box so citizens can freely share general ideas. All comments will be considered but MCOLES wants respondents to focus on police community relations in their area. To submit general comments, or submit documents for consideration residents should send an email to MCOLES-ExecDir2016-2@michigan.gov.
Those responding to the survey or e-mail box will not be identified personally. MCOLES asks for a zip code to ensure all areas of Michigan are surveyed and there are three questions that ask for gender, race, and age. The survey does not ask for names or other personal information.
