Community and officer surveys

The Sacramento Police Department remains committed to being the most effective police department for everyone in the city of Sacramento. The department has partnered with California State University, Sacramento, the University of San Diego, California Endowment, California Wellness Foundation, and Sierra Health Foundation to conduct a survey of community members and the officers who serve them. The survey was conducted between October of 2018 and February of 2019, and is similar to a nationwide survey that was conducted by the PEW Research Center on Police and Community relations.

The survey identifies areas both where the department is performing well and those where it can improve, and examines topics such as community relations, community trust, police use of force, gun violence, and neighborhood-specific concerns. Moving forward, this survey will be conducted on an annual basis so the department can track progress in meeting the needs of the community in each of these areas.

As always, the Sacramento Police Department continuously strives to be a progressive leader among law enforcement agencies.
