The Lloydminster RCMP community survey is back up this year and in less than a day has garnered more than half the responses as it did in 2016.
The RCMP has been conducting the survey for the past two years to get a better understanding of what Lloydminsterites see as policing priorities, and to also give them a chance to voice concerns about crime in the community.
“So far the response has been fantastic,” said Const. Grant Kirzinger, media spokesperson for the Lloydminster RCMP.
“This survey is a great way for us to gauge what their concerns are and the nice thing is we’re able to utilize that information and help us form our strategic priorities for the upcoming year.”
Kirzinger attributed the community’s interest in the survey to greater community involvement between the RCMP and citizens, as well as the fact people are becoming more aware of the survey and that there’s a platform for citizens give input into community policing.
The questions on the survey are designed to glean information that is integral to the RCMP’s performance plans and help mounties choose and implement strategic priorities for the upcoming year.
The RCMP were happy with last year’s results as well, adding there were enough individuals who responded to get strong statistical significance that made them confident in the data received.
This year’s survey will be up all month, so citizens still have a few weeks to give input.
“We just ask people to go to the website and fill out that survey; it’s very short, only 10 questions and it would be awesome to have people’s input and it would be a great way for us to gain knowledge of concerns inside our community,” Kirzinger said.
