2018 Council Policing Priorities Survey

Red Deer City Council wants to hear from citizens about perceptions of community safety and policing priorities in our community. This information will help Council better understand what issues the community would like to see Red Deer RCMP focus on, and will be used to set objectives, priorities and goals for the Red Deer RCMP’s Annual Policing Plan (pdf) .

A phone survey is currently underway by Banister Research. They are calling a random sample of residents in the city. Participation in the survey is completely optional. If you have questions about the survey, please contact Communications and Strategic Planning.

You can also complete the survey online.

City Council will also be at our annual Let’s Talk event on April 7 at Parkland Mall if you’d like to speak to them in person about community safety and policing issues.

Vehicles for Hire Survey

With a growing number of options for transportation and vehicles for hire in Red Deer and central Alberta, The City requested feedback in the fall from citizens to help steer what rules and regulations should be in place when it updates its Taxi Bylaw and Limousine and Sedan Bylaws this year.

Citizen Satisfaction Survey

The 2017 Ipsos Citizen Satisfaction Survey was conducted earlier this year. The survey consisted of telephone conversations with residents, and the findings are used to create benchmarks for areas including service delivery, communication with residents, and important issues facing Red Deer citizens. These benchmarks help determine if citizen satisfaction has increased or decreased and if programs/initiatives are effective. The contractors are currently in the process of tabulating the results of the 2017 survey. If you would like to see the results of the Winter 2016 survey, you can view survey results here.
