Public Safety Survey

Posted on behalf of Kevin Donahue, Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice

At the end of January, Mayor Bowser launched an online survey for 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 and can be done either on a computer or smartphone. You can also complete a paper version of the survey at your nearest D.C. Recreation Center (Guy Mason). 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.
