Community engagement surveys, tools, and analytics for Local Government Leaders to
Make Informed Decisions with Confidence
Give everyone a voice, strengthen trust, and build a better community.
Traditional community engagement methods neglect the majority of resident voices.
Relying on town halls and social media for community input is insufficient, often biased, and can misinform decision-making. Without a community engagement platform to help, it can feel like:
You wish you had more data to support your decisions.
You’re struggling to hear from everyone in your community.
Residents are losing trust in government.
Long-term planning and budgeting is challenging.
You are uncertain that you are asking residents the right questions.
You’re struggling to get your community engaged.

Local governments that prioritize community engagement are often better performing organizations overall. Connecting with residents opens up a line of communication, and acting on their feedback cultivates trust. Through community engagement, government leaders can find consensus while also learning from dissenting opinions that may present new ideas. But a lack of time and resources and fear of what residents might say prevent many municipalities from taking the first step.
Polco relieves local governments of the time-consuming effort. We give leaders a platform to connect to verified residents. Our surveys eliminate bias and balance out extreme voices. Our engagement services peel back the curtain so decision-makers have a better understanding of resident sentiment.
All this data can simplify planning and budgeting processes by using data to align actions with residents’ wishes. Community data also informs where to allocate resources to where they are needed most. Plus, hundreds of jurisdictions from all over the country conduct Polco surveys. Our large database allows decision-makers the ability to compare and add context to their results.
