The goal of the anonymous survey is to get ideas on how police can better relationships with local communities.

David Harvey is the Executive Director of the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards, who’s conducting the survey. He says they’re hoping to measure attitudes in three areas.

“Community engagement, training, and recruiting. So giving best practices to law enforcement agencies and how they can better engage with their community to foster better relationships. How we can train better. As well as recruiting, how we can address best practices for law enforcement agencies to implement recruitment and hiring strategies that will help them employ a diverse workforce.”

The law enforcement commission plans to have the study wrapped up by March 20th.
