Are County Police Doing a Good Job?
A survey is being conducted to gauge the effectiveness of DeKalb County police.
The DeKalb County Police Department is conducting a survey of its citizens to gather impressions about county police services and how well they do their job.
The image of the county's police took a hit last month when two officers assigned to the Tucker Precinct were arrested and charged with corruption. County police services have also been cited by frustrated residents as a reason to start a new city around the Lakeside High School area.
The 11-question survey is designed to glean feedback from county residents about police services such as response times, roadside assistance, traffic citations and satisfaction with the level of assistance citizens received from the police department. The results will be provided to the police chief for his use in planning and achieving the goals of the police department.
Residents can complete the survey anonymously, or provide comments and contact information. The deadline to complete the survey is March 31.
The DeKalb County Police Department is based at West Exchange Place in Tucker.
