Community Policing Survey

"Pride in Community Policing"


The Charlestown Police Department Mission Statement outlines and justifies the importance of community policing efforts.  The ever changing job of law enforcement, especially on the local level, is only fulfilled when it's philosophy and efforts are centered around the community it serves.  Community Policing however is more than just a philosophy, it is the cooperation, relationship and attitude toward problem solving and investing in the present and future.  Community Policing efforts effect all aspects of a police officer's duties in this day and age.  The focus is on the community, working with concerned and responsible citizens in an effort to realize the standards of living ideal for peaceful and prosperous living for everyone, especially the youth....tomorrow's leaders.

Please take a few minutes and complete the following survey, it is extremely important and useful information for your police department.  Only through your valued opinion, and those of your neighbors, can we fully understand the progress we make and identify the problems we need to further address and/or prioritize.  Thanks for your time and opinion, and joining your community police officers in striving for increased community policing relations and efforts.
