Public Safety & Health Committee to discuss Police Satisfaction Survey results


By - Oct 21st, 2020 01:08 pm

During tomorrow’s meeting of the Public Safety and Health Committee (Thursday, October 22), the committee will hear file #200837 – Communication from the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners relating to the 2019 Police Satisfaction Survey. The third such survey was conducted by Neighborhood Analytics, LLC and the Strategic Research Institute at St. Norbert College with the purpose of measuring resident perceptions regarding a range of issues relevant to the Milwaukee Police Department including; satisfaction with and trust in the police, perceptions of safety and police visibility, views on various kinds of police contacts, and exposure to crime.

Alderman Michael J. Murphy sponsored an amendment to the 2014 City budget that funded the first Police Satisfaction Survey that now occurs every two to three years. The Alderman is looking forward to tomorrow’s conversation. “Public safety is a vital service that the City of Milwaukee must provide, and it is important to check in regularly with residents, who are our customers, on how they feel about this service delivery,” said Alderman Murphy. “This is an important milestone as we look to find areas that have improved over time, and other areas that could still use more support. I believe the results of this survey can be a tool to aid those discussions and the decisions on change that will follow.”

The Public Safety and Health Committee meeting will occur at 9 a.m. on Thursday, October 22nd. The meeting will be televised live on the City Channel (channel 25 on Spectrum Cable and channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse in the City of Milwaukee) and via streaming video on the city website at
