More than 1000 stakeholders being invited by the Lethbridge Police Service to offer their opinions on six key topics this month.
The Lethbridge Police Service launching its most comprehensive community engagement survey to date as it looks toward its next four year budget and strategic plan. A broad cross-section of more than 1000 stakeholders have been invited by Lethbridge College's Citizen Society Research (CSRL) Lab to share their opinions on community safety, police performance, management of financial resources, strategic initiatives and community priorities. Police Chief Rob Davis says it's important for the LPS to priortize its budget in the midst of a recession. The LPS will also be part of the Research Lab's annual public opinion poll, so Lethbridge residents can have their say, as well. Community consultation has always been a key component in LPS budget and business planning and the Service has been a longtime partner with the CSRL. As the city continues to expand and change it is imperative the Service understand the needs and expectations of the people we serve in order to provide effective and efficient services. - Sam Borasto
