City, Commission Announce Public Outreach Program on Police Reform
FRESNO, CA – The City of Fresno and the Commission for Police Reform (CPR) today announced a comprehensive public outreach campaign to gather input from residents on different aspects of police operations, procedures and policies in response to local and national demands for changes in policing.
The Community Input Sub-Committee of the Commission has created a website at www.fresno-cpr.com that includes a list of CPR members, along with schedules, agendas, minutes and recordings of committee and sub-committee meetings, and contact information for the Commission.
It also features an on-line survey facilitated by the Sociology Department at California State University, Fresno to facilitate questions about respondents’ personal views, experiences, and opinions about policing in Fresno. The survey, which is anonymous and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, is available in English, Spanish, Hmong, Punjabi and Arabic.
Individuals who complete the survey will be able to reply with their comments in a text box following each question. The survey has a time limit for completion and will only allow one submission from the same IP address. The commission will use the responses to help identify reform recommendations to the City Council for consideration.
Here are the links to the surveys:
