Community members are invited to share their expectations for community policing in Kirkland.
According to a press release, community policing is the law enforcement philosophy that emphasizes relationships between the police and community members. These relationships help police officers engage with residents to prevent crime from happening, instead of only responding after incidents occur.
The city is asking community members to participate in an online survey on community policing and public safety priorities. Responses to this survey will inform staff about public safety priorities across the community, ideas on crime prevention strategies and ways to maintain and strengthen trusting relationships between the police department and the community, the release states.
