2013 Citizen Survey Results

Sheriff's Professional Standards Bureau


Citizen surveys can be a valuable tool in gauging the effectiveness of the services we offer the community.


The Sheriff's Office has completed a survey utilizing a random sampling of individuals who placed calls for service during the month of February 2013. This year's process differed from previous surveys in which we had notified people by mail. The rate of return in the past was very low.


Rather than send notices by mail this year, deputies contacted individuals directly. This resulted in greater participation among the contact group than in previous years.


The results of the survey have been posted on our website at The link to the survey is on the banner above the photo gallery on the main page.
