Colorado Springs Police Department will conduct a citizen survey, at a cost of not more than $24,950, in coming weeks to take the pulse of the community on a number of issues. Here's a release about it:
Over the next several weeks, the Colorado Springs Police Department will be conducting a citizen survey. During this time, a professional survey company will be randomly calling households in Colorado Springs, and asking a variety of questions relating to crime in the community, safety issues, and police response.

The Colorado Springs Police Department values the opinion of the community it serves, and this survey will assist the police department in identifying citizen’s concerns about crime in their neighborhoods, the effectiveness of community oriented policing, and overall satisfaction with police services.

An analysis of the survey results will be posted on the City’s website and CSPD social media platforms later this fall. 
Police officers have been trying to do more with not enough resources as crime rises and their pay remains relatively stagnant. Meantime, special units have been shut down in order to return officers to the streets.

If you've been paying attention, you'd know that cops are dealing with a lot of homicides, robberies and other serious crime of late. Mayor John Suthers wants to ask taxpayers to approve a fee-based stormwater program at the November election to free money for police pay and new hires. Taxpayers already approved a special Public Safety Sales Tax in 2001, but apparently it's not enough.
