News release from the city of Abilene:

Today, the city of Abilene, launched an online survey originally written by the United States Department of Justice designed to gather opinions and experiences from members of the community to better understand crime within Abilene and our response to it as a community.

The Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement assesses five key components that involve the Abilene Police Department and the community as a whole:



Procedural justice


Contact and satisfaction

"The Police Department proactively seeks to engage the community in many ways, because we believe We Are Better Together. In furtherance of our community policing efforts, we invite you to partner with us as we work together to make Abilene a safe place for all generations" stated Chief of Police, Stan Standridge

In his press conference on stopping violence earlier this week, Mayor Pro Tem Anthony Williams informed the public that the City would be conducting this important survey. "I believe that community collaboration is a very important piece of bettering Abilene and decreasing crime" said Williams. "This survey is one way we can increase collaboration through better communication and a deeper understanding of the community's view on crime and the City's response to it."

Upon completion of the survey, the City will publish the results to the City's and Abilene Police Department's Websites and APD social media accounts, for further engagement and discussion. The survey will close at 5:00 PM on Friday, July 29, 2016.
