Community Feedback Needed

On June 10, 2020, Bakersfield City Councilmember Andrae Gonzales directed the Bakersfield Police Department to form a community panel that would work together over a six-month period to review and evaluate regional and national police policy and training recommendations. To this end, the Bakersfield Police Department-Community Collaborative (BPD-CC) aims to solicit and formalize community-sourced recommendations for policing reform, policing capacity, and building trust and greater partnership between BPD and the Bakersfield Community.

The Bakersfield Police Department - Community Collaborative invites you to take this “Community Survey on Public Safety, Community Policing and Law Enforcement.” It will take approximately five minutes of your time. Your participation will help your agency to improve its services, processes, and reputation. Participant names will not be included as this survey is completely confidential and anonymous. The survey is designed to assist in making evidence-based recommendations to the Bakersfield Police Department by gathering opinions and experiences from members of its community. The survey assesses five key components that involve your local law enforcement agency:

l Community involvement
