The Regina Police Service is notifying the public of an upcoming Community Perception public survey, from September 8th to October 4th 2021. This is the sixth survey conducted on behalf of, but independent from, the Regina Police Service. It is designed to gather feedback on several topics related to public perceptions of the Regina Police Service and crime in our city.
To maintain objectivity and reduce bias, the survey was designed by two professors from the University of Regina and will be conducted by Insightrix Research Inc., a Saskatchewan-based market research firm. Regina residents will be randomly selected, using postal code information, and the majority of potential respondents will be contacted by phone. The employees of Insightrix Research Inc. will identify themselves at the start of the survey process.
Anyone who works for the Regina Police Service, or lives with someone who currently works for the Regina Police Service, will be excluded from participating in the survey.
The purpose of the survey is to gain information about public perceptions of police and crime. The questions will relate to seven general topics: police effectiveness; police responsiveness; visibility and presence of police; fear of crime; trust and confidence in police; traffic enforcement and perceptions of the police service’s use of social media. The Regina Police Service wants to reassure residents that this is a legitimate survey and part of the Service’s ongoing commitment to gather public input. The Regina Police Service encourages residents who are contacted for this survey to take advantage of this important opportunity to provide their feedback.
Any member of the public who has concerns or questions about the survey may contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. Previous Community Perception surveys can be viewed here. Thank you!
