Palmdale public safety survey


What are the important issues?

Are you interested in strengthening the relationship between law enforcement and your neighborhood? The City of Palmdale invites residents to participate in a vital initiative to assist local authorities in better understanding and meeting residents’ needs while enhancing processes and reputation.

The Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement is an anonymous questionnaire that focuses on four key components: assessing the level of engagement between authorities and the community, gathering feedback on perceptions of safety and security within the City, evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement operations and understanding residents’ experiences and satisfaction levels when interacting with deputies.

“While Palmdale remains committed to providing top-tier public safety services, we recognize the invaluable insights our residents possess,” said Palmdale Mayor Austin Bishop. “Please take five minutes to participate in the survey and play an active role in shaping our law enforcement practices.”

The survey questions were developed by the U.S. Department of Justice and Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), with the support of ICF International and law enforcement experts. Responses are confidential, and participants may skip any questions they do not feel comfortable answering. There are no right or wrong answers; every response is valuable in painting a comprehensive picture of perceptions and needs.
