A new tool to gather input on public safety from Seattle residents is important to the neighborhood business districts in Seattle. This survey is aimed at collecting residents’ opinions of public safety conditions in Seattle’s urban villages, and if there are any urban villages where residents feel unsafe.
Public safety issues routinely surface in Seattle neighborhoods. This survey will help identify and pinpoint, in which blocks residents do not feel safe, and the data will suggest where the City can begin to implement steps to reverse this unsafe trend. Specifically, businesses in neighborhoods where residents do not feel safe to walk around will benefit from the data collection. In this case, the City will utilize this qualitative data to target problematic neighborhoods, and turn it into an environment for consumers to shop and dine comfortably.
The online survey was drafted by a team of graduate students at the Evans School of Public Affairs at the University of Washington. The survey also asks for opinions on the Seattle Police Department, focusing on community relations and behavior.
Please take the survey and provide accurate responses to support continued efforts in making Seattle a safe haven for consumers to explore the hidden gems of various unique neighborhoods.
