LONG BEACH — Long Beach police want residents to take an anonymous and confidential online survey that seeks feedback on the department and suggestions for improvement.
The survey, which has a single box for people to write anything they want, is available until October 20.
The survey is part of a top-to-bottom, independent analysis of the department’s internal operations and external relations with the community.
The International Association of Chiefs of Police has been contracted to conduct the assessment at the request of the police department.
The survey is phase two of the project. The first part took place in July and August when residents were encouraged to attend community meetings and give input on the police department.
The full assessment is scheduled for completion early next year, and the final report will be released to the public, said Long Beach police Cmdr. Michael Lewis.
