The City of Asheville is reimagining public safety, and we need your help!  Please answer the following questions to help us understand ways that our current public safety structure is working well and ways that it could be improved.

 

We anticipate that this questionnaire will take between 10 and 30 minutes to complete. Your input will be considered as we determine how our public safety services can better promote racial equity and economic inclusion. Your name will not be connected to your answers if you have not previously registered with Public Input. If you have previously registered, please hover over your name and sign out if you would like anonymity.

 

This survey will close on Friday, September 11 at 8:00 p.m. If you have technical difficulties with the survey, you can email [email protected] or leave a message at (855) 925-2801, Project Code 8734, and we will call you back during business hours to provide support. Please note that this line is for technical assistance only - comments left on this line will not be included in the report.

 

Thank you in advance for your input!
