The City of Billings is excited to partner with Polco to implement a citywide open participation police services survey and provide a platform for resident engagement.
We need to hear from as many residents as possible to ensure your voices drive policy. Getting input from a wide array of residents will help us understand our strengths and areas for improvement and ensure that we understand the values of our community. It will let us be sure that we are representing our neighbors in the large and small decisions we make about programs, policies and strategic plans.
A few things about completing the survey on Polco:
• Polco allows the City of Billings to reach out to residents through different communication channels (social media, email, websites, etc.) while gathering resident responses in one central location.
• Polco keeps individual opinions anonymous to the City of Billings, while allowing City staff to see broad demographic and geographic breakdowns.
• When the survey closes, results will be presented online in interactive charts and tables.
• We will ask you to provide an email address and zip code to submit the survey, this ensures one response per person and allows us to follow up with future research, while keeping your responses anonymous to us, and ensuring your privacy.
We hope that, by providing this quick and simple input process, we will hear from more people in our community and from people from varied backgrounds, who have different experiences and interests.
