ATLANTA—As a national search is underway for a permanent Chief to lead the Atlanta Police Department, Mayor Andre Dickens is requesting community input on policing through a public survey, which can be found here.
“Effective 21st century policing requires a diverse group of community voices involved in the search for a permanent Police Chief,” said Mayor Dickens. “Building public trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve is a collaborative process, and our Administration wants to ensure that all Atlantans have a seat at the table so we can hear their priorities for policing in Atlanta.”
Participants in the survey remain anonymous and will be asked for their input on qualifications important to them in the next Chief, APD services they view as highest priorities and more.
Earlier this year, Mayor Dickens implemented his One Safe City plan—a balanced, whole of government approach which engages partners, communities and residents. The plan addresses the root causes of crime as well as targets gangs, drugs, illegal guns and repeat offenders. You can learn more about the One Safe City plan here.
