Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office invites you to take this Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement. It will take approximately five minutes of your time and is completely confidential and anonymous. Your participation will help WCSO to improve services, processes, and reputation.

The survey is designed for WCSO to gather opinions and experiences from members of the community. The survey assesses five key components that involve WCSO:

•  Community involvement;

•  Safety;

•  Procedural justice;

•  Performance; and

•  Contact and satisfaction

You may come into contact with multiple law enforcement agencies within Washington County, but please answer the questions thinking only about WCSO. Please indicate your response to each item by selecting the appropriate answer based on your feelings, opinions, and experiences. This is not a test and there are no right or wrong answers. Please answer each question honestly.

The “Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement” was developed by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) with the support of ICF International and law enforcement experts.

Below is the survey. Thank you for taking the time to help improve your Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
