Are Local Police Doing a Good Job?

A survey is being conducted to discover the effectiveness of DeKalb police.

The DeKalb County Police Department is conducting a survey of its citizens to gather impressions about county police services and how well they do their job.

“Public Safety continues to be the county’s top priority,” said CEO Ellis in a statement. “I encourage all DeKalb residents to take the survey and provide the county with the information we need to plan for the future and preserve the safety of our county.”

The image of the county's police took a hit last month when two officers assigned to the Tucker Precinct were arrested and charged with corruption.

The 11-question survey is designed to glean feedback from DeKalb residents about county police services such as response times, roadside assistance, traffic citations, and satisfaction with the level of assistance citizens received from the Police Department. The results will be provided to the Police Chief for his use in planning and achieving the goals of the Police Department. 

Residents can complete the survey anonymously, or provide comments and contact information. The deadline to complete the survey is March 31.

The DeKalb County Police Department is based at West Exchange Place in Tucker.

The survey is available here

When I tried to take the survey I got a message saying I had already taken it. That is a good example of the level of service the DeKalb police provide, poor. I wish they would do something to lower the speeds on Lavista Rd. between Northlake Parkway and Chamblee Tucker Rd. It has been so long since anyone got a speeding ticket that 55 mph is the norm and people are routinely exceeding that.

Really ? Before blaming the Police Dept. you might want to be sure the link you were given by Patch is correct Guy. It is not. I went to the DPD site and found the correct link. The correct lnk to the survey is: http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e74pm9aihdrgv6ms/a01mfhdykam06/questions

I did the survey. Dekalb needs more police officers and Code enforcment officers. They all need the correct equiptment and enough pay as to keep them in Dekalb, so that Dekalb does not become a training center for other counties.

Your link doesn't work either, Dill. I'm waiting for the police department to send me a corrected one.
