Town of High River Policing Committee Community Survey

This survey asks for three things:
1) Your perceptions of the past year;
2) How you feel about the current state of safety and crime in High River, and
3) For your priorities for the coming year.

Feedback from the community is important to us. Your suggestions will help inform the Annual Policing Plan for High River's local police. 

We realize not everyone has the same definitions of what crime means, and we may have different experiences so please tell us what matters to you. As you will see in the questions we have tried to provide some focus on areas of crime ranging from traffic offences to property crimes.

Please focus your comments on the coming year and ideas or suggestions for how we can keep High River a safe community with a great quality of life. 

This is an anonymous survey and all comments with any personal or identifying information will remain confidential. Please see the statement at the end of the survey that ensures your privacy.
