BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — The Bakersfield Police Department - Community Collaborative wants the community to take a “Community Survey on Public Safety, Community Policing and Law Enforcement.”

The Bakersfield Police Department community collaborative is asking the community to take an anonymous survey on public safety, community policing and law enforcement.

Bakersfield City Councilmember Andrae Gonzalez directed BPD to form the community panel and he is encouraging Bakersfield residents to fill out the survey.

"I think it is really important for the community to know that this committee and the full Bakersfield Police Department want to hear from the community and all the stakeholders," said Gonzalez. "In the same vein the city council always wants to hear from community members and know exactly what people are experiencing what their hopes are for the future, if they have any significant concers, we always want to hear about those things so this is just one other process through which community members can allow their voices to be heard."

The survey looks at 5 key components including community involvement: Safety, Procedural Justice, Performance, Contact, and Satisfaction with the BPD.

The community survey can be accessed here.

The survey will take about 5 minutes to complete. Results are anonymous and confidential.
