“This survey is another opportunity for Lexington residents to provide valuable feedback about officers and the department as a whole. We want to hear from as many people as possible,” Chief Lawrence Weathers said. “The survey findings will help us evaluate police department initiatives and policies.”

Developed by the national non-profit organization Police2Peace along with researchers at New York University, the survey site has options for residents as well as business owners.

Respondents are asked for their opinion on how the department treats people and its effectiveness in solving crime. Other questions touch on homelessness, mental illness, and the police department budget.

The survey site will remain open until November 1. Results will be compiled by researchers at NYU and provided to the department.

Information gathered will also be shared with city leaders.
