Everett Police Seeking Critical Feedback

Everett Police want your feedback on their priorities.

Since most burglar alarm calls are false, should Everett Police not respond to any burglar alarm calls at all?

That was an option brought up recently at an Everett City Council committee meeting.

Where would you rank the priorities for the police department in Everett, Washington?

The city has launched a survey and they want residents of Everett to participate. Here’s more.

The Everett Police Department is currently updating the department’s strategic plan. All Everett community members and local stakeholders are encouraged to provide input by completing the Public Safety Community Survey, which is available online now through Jan. 31.

The department’s strategic plan identifies the department’s core values, mission, major initiatives and overall vision. The plan was last updated in 2013 and does not include some current community concerns, such as addiction and street-level social issues.

“Our hope is that the survey will provide helpful insight into how our community feels about the services we provide, their safety and what they feel should be our top priorities,” said Everett Police Chief Dan Templeman. “It’s an easy five minutes out of your day that will help us shape the future of our public safety services.”

The survey results will be incorporated into the department’s updated strategic plan document, which will be available to the public this spring. The department intends to survey the community regularly moving forward to evaluate community satisfaction and priorities and guide their work.

The survey is available in English and Spanish and can be taken online through Jan. 31. Links to the survey can be found at www.everettwa.gov/EPDplan.
