Police Services Board Launches Community Satisfaction Survey

From the Peterborough Police Services Board:

In May, the Peterborough Police Services Board retained the consulting services of Met-Scan to assist with the completion of our 2020-2023 Strategic Plan. Over the past
few months, they have met with many of our external stakeholders and members of the Service. These consultations will continue into September.

Part of the consultation process includes a community satisfaction survey which is being launched today (August 22). Met Scan is seeking input from the citizens of Peterborough, Lakefield
and Cavan Monaghan.

The survey is available for public comment until September 20, 2019.

Community participation is crucial and we encourage all members of the public to participate and provide input which will help shape the future of your police service.

Sincerely
Gary Baldwin, Chair
