Nationally benchmarked surveys for law enforcement
Law enforcement can work with residents to strengthen trust and build a safer community.
Trust in the police has fallen by 20% since 2020. Trust lives at the root of most law enforcement issues today. Without trust, services suffer, staffing issues arise, officers do not feel valued, and communities feel less safe.
Building trust must be a top priority for today’s police departments. Results from The National Law Enforcement Survey by Polco (2022) reveal that residents want better relationships with police too.
Americans’ top three priorities for law enforcement are transparent communication, positive connections, and more community-centered training. Observing this in their own cities, many law enforcement agencies across the country are focusing on engagement. Surveys like The NLES get community members involved in safety decisions, while simultaneously giving leaders insights they need to move forward.
