Citizen Survey

2017 Bismarck Police Biennial Citizen Survey

The Crime Prevention/Community Services Section is responsible for conducting a biennial survey of citizens' attitudes toward, and opinions of, the Bismarck Police Department.

The survey is conducted to determine citizen attitudes and opinion of department, safety and security concerns, and suggestions for improvement. The input received from this survey will be used when amending or adopting police community relations policies and procedures and for performance improvement and strategic planning.

You must be 18 years old or older to take the survey.

One of the questions asks your address. We don’t need to know your exact address. The hundred block and street will do, such as 800 block of North 16th Street. If you live outside Bismarck, the name of the county or city you live in is adequate, i.e. Burleigh County, New Salem, Mandan etc. The reason we need this information is, if you note a concern or problem in your neighborhood, we need to know what neighborhood you live in so we can address that concern or problem.

There are sixteen questions on the survey. How much time you spend on this survey is up to you. At the minimum it will take about two minutes. There are several open ended questions asking for your opinions on several topics. You can give us as few or many opinions as you want.

You will be given the option to sign in or create an account.  This is not mandatory but may be useful if you decide to take more time to answer the open ended questions.  This will give you the ability to save your answers up to that point.

Thank you.
