2023 Seattle Public Safety Survey

Posted: November 17, 2023

By: Crime and Justice Research Center

Seattle University is administering the ninth annual citywide Seattle Public Safety Survey, which is accessible at publicsafetysurvey.org through Nov. 30 and is available in Amharic, Arabic, Chinese, English, Korean, Oromo, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Tigrinya and Vietnamese.

The purpose of the survey is to solicit feedback on public safety and security concerns from those who live and/or work in Seattle. A report on the survey results will be provided to the Seattle Police Department to help them better understand your neighborhood’s safety and security concerns, and community-police dialogues will be held in May-August 2024 to provide an opportunity for police-community engagement about the results. More information on the Seattle Public Safety Survey which is part of the Seattle Police Department’s Micro-Community Policing Plans (SPD MCPP), can be found on the SPD MCPP website.

Please circulate this e-mail to your friends, family, co-workers and community members and feel free to post the information on your social media. Flyers advertising the survey are attached, which we encourage you to also share, print and post at your work, religious institution, community center, apartment or other communal location. Here is a link to access the 2023 Seattle Public Safety Survey flyers in all 11 languages. Thank you for your help spreading the word.

If you would like to work with a Seattle University researcher to set up outreach and assist in the facilitation of the survey to your communities or organizations or would like more information about the survey, please do not hesitate to contact the SPD MCPP research team (listed below).
