During the month of October, 2014, the Smithfield Police Department will be conducting a mail survey of citizen attitudes and opinions with respect to: overall agency performance; overall competence of agency employees; citizens’ perception of officers’ attitudes and behavior; community concern over safety and security within the agency’s service area, and; citizens’ recommendations and suggestions for improvements.
This survey project will be handled in its entirety by students in the Justice Studies program at Salve Regina University, under the direction of a faculty member. Surveys will be mailed to randomly-selected households in the Town of Smithfield. Recipients are encouraged to complete the anonymous survey and return by the specified due date. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!
Questions regarding this voluntary survey may be directed to Deputy Chief Robert W. VanNieuwenhuyze.
