Transforming Community Safety Survey
Minneapolis Community: Please complete our Transforming Community Safety Survey to provide your input on a new model of community safety.
The purpose of this survey is for members of the Minneapolis community to identify what safety looks like, and to provide ideas for how a new model can be accomplished. Results from this survey will be used to help create recommendations for elected leaders. This will also be used to help guide our next steps in our community engagement. The survey will be available in multiple languages other than English soon.
