The following announcement was distributed on area listservs on February 1st, and includes a public survey for the city to get input from residents on issues related to public safety:
On behalf of Kevin Donahue, Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice:
Last week, Mayor Bowser launched an online survey residents’ input about issues related to public safety in Washington, DC. In 2016, violent crime in the District decreased by 10 percent, with a 17 percent reduction in homicides and a 13 percent reduction in robberies. In her first two years in office, total crime is down 9 percent. The new online survey will inform the Bowser Administration on its ongoing work to create a safer, stronger DC.
The online survey is available here (https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3128951/PublicSafetySurvey) and can be done either on a computer or smartphone. Beginning February 2, you can complete a paper version of the survey at your nearest D.C. Recreation Center. Completing the survey takes about 10 minutes and your responses are anonymous. Please complete the online survey by Friday, February 10 or the paper survey by Thursday, February 9.
