The Village of Carthage Police Department invites you to take this Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement. It will take approximately 5 minutes of your time and is completely confidential.

 

Your participation will help the Village Police Department to complete the mandatory Police Reform imposed by Governor Cuomo.

 

The survey is designed for the Village Police Department to gather opinions and experiences from members of the Village of Carthage regarding components that involve the Village Police Department:

 

Community Involvement, Safety, Procedural Justice, Performance, Contact and Satisfaction.

 

You may come into contact with multiple law enforcement agencies, but please answer the questions thinking only about the VILLAGE OF CARTHAGE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

 

Please indicate your response to each item by selecting the appropriate answer based on your feelings, opinions, and experiences. You may skip any survey question you do not feel comfortable responding to or know how to answer, but we encourage you to respond to as many items as possible. This is not a test, and there are no right or wrong answers.

 

Please answer each question honestly.

 

Thank you for your time in completing the survey.
