GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Police Department has provided a survey to residents in hopes of seeing how closely the department’s values and mission are with the expectations of the community.
Green Bay PD is asking the public to take the roughly three-minute survey in order for residents to share their thoughts on public safety and policing.
The community survey is provided with help from Police2Peace, a national non-profit that helps law enforcement with community policing and engagement.
This survey will help us see how closely aligned our mission, vision, and values are with the community’s expectations. I want to thank everyone for taking the time to share their thoughts as we work to continuously improve the service we provide for the community.Chief Chris Davis, Green Bay Police Department
