Satisfaction Survey Results
In May of 2009 the Cold Spring Police Department
developed a citizen satisfaction survey to gauge just how well
the citizens felt about safety in the city and the satisfaction
with the department, its personnel, and services. The survey
was sent out that year to establish a baseline for use in future
years. The survey was sent out again in 2011 to compare the results.
The results of both surveys are posted for comparison.
