Public Safety Survey – Deadline Extended to Sept. 15

What is your vision for public safety in Culver City? Share your answer through an online survey as part of Culver City’s Public Safety Review. The City Council needs to hear your opinions on public safety services and responses, your experiences interacting with the Culver City Police Department, and your vision for a safe and welcoming Culver City for all. The deadline to respond has been extended to September 15, 2020. Responses will be used to inform the recommendations presented to City Council on October 12, 2020 and will shape the General Plan Update.

On May 25, 2020, Americans across the country witnessed the killing of George Floyd in police custody via social and televised media. Outrage regarding the circumstances of his death led to mass protests and government action to examine public safety services. In response to numerous community requests, the City Council of Culver City held a Special Meeting on June 15, 2020 focused on hearing public comments about the Culver City Police Department’s policies and budget. The City Council then formed a Task Force to Review Public Safety Services to 1) review and reallocate safety resources, services, and budgets and 2) review the Police Department’s use of force policy. In addition to this survey, the Task Force is holding community listening sessions, participating in public meetings, reviewing budget details, and analyzing departmental data.

This survey is designed to gather information about community members’ opinions about public safety services and responses, as well as perceptions of the Culver City Police Department. Survey findings will be presented publicly on September 17, 2020, at a joint meeting of the Chief Advisory Panel and the General Plan Advisory Committee.

Your answers are anonymous, and you can also skip any questions. There are no right or wrong answers – we want to know about your perspectives and experiences.
