The City of Wetaskiwin has now launched its annual Wetaskiwin and area community safety and policing priorities survey online. This is the fourth year this survey has been conducted by the city in partnership with the Wetaskiwin RCMP.
The survey results are used to inform local policing and bylaw enforcement priorities in addition to refining the city’s coverall community safety approach.
Community members from the City of Wetaskiwin, Town of Millet, County of Wetaskiwin, and County of Camrose are invited to participate in this year’s survey.
“The RCMP is looking for your input through this annual survey, and it’s important that we work together to reduce crime in our communities,” stated Mayor Tyler Gandam.
The survey will collect demographic information from those completing it including area of residence, age, and gender. The city states this information is essential for understanding which types of crime are of concern for different areas.
“The online policing priorities survey — along with the virtual and in-person town hall meetings — allows community members to share feedback, which informs a significant part of our Annual Performance Plan,” said Wetaskiwin RCMP Inspector Keith Durance.
“The concerns and comments received are added to our internal review processes to build a policing plan that meets the needs of all the communities we serve.”
The survey is available online until March 15, 2022.
