HPD Performance Survey Offered to Public Through April
Members of the Big Island community are being asked to provide feedback on police performance across the county.
Hawai‘i Police Chief Paul Ferreira issued an invite to the public to take the department’s Community Satisfaction Survey, which runs throughout the entire month until 4 pm April 30, 2021.
“In keeping with our department’s Vision Statement that the Hawaiʻi Police Department is committed to providing the highest quality of police service and forming partnerships with the community to achieve public satisfaction making the Big Island a safe place to live, visit, and conduct business, we are again asking members of the public to participate in an anonymous Community Satisfaction Survey,” Chief Ferreira said.
Knowing that the department’s effectiveness is ultimately determined by the confidence and cooperation of the community it serves, the survey includes both multiple-choice questions and an opportunity to make individual comments that will aid decision makers in determining the department’s strengths and weaknesses, HPD said in a press release.
By comparing the results of this year’s survey with the results of past surveys, the department can better gauge where it has improved and where it needs further improvement.
