A quick glance on social media and it’s easy to see plenty of suggestions about how police can better serve their community. Now Mount Dora Police Department (MDPD) is asking residents to provide their anonymous input to help the department better serve the community.
Mount Dora’s Interim Police Chief Brett Meade is utilizing a community survey created by the National Police Foundation (NPF) to help assess the department. The 12-item questionnaire has been used by law enforcement departments across the country, and all of the information provided is anonymous and goes directly to the NPF for independent assessment. The NPF is a nationally-recognized police research organization with the purpose of helping police departments be more effective at doing their job.
The short survey will help identify areas of concern and accomplishment for MDPD and help officers and command staff to improve police policies, community policing, and other areas addressed in the questionnaire. There is also space at the end to provide further comments on topics not covered in the survey.
Available in English and Spanish, the survey can be found online hereor hard copies of the survey are available at the Customer Service/Utilities window at Mount Dora City Hall. The survey will be available online for 30 days. Completed hard copy surveys can be dropped in the ballot box located in the lobbies of City Hall or the Mount Dora Police Department.
