THE Police Service Commission (PolSC) has commissioned a national survey to collect data on the public’s experiences and satisfaction with the performance of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS).
A release on Friday stated, “The Public Trust, Confidence, and Satisfaction Survey takes place from November 27 to December 15, 2023, and provides the public of Trinidad and Tobago with an opportunity to have their say about the responsiveness of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service to the safety and security needs and concerns of the public. “
The survey is one of the tools the Commission uses to undertake its constitutional mandate of monitoring the efficiency and effectiveness of the discharge of the functions of the Commissioner of Police and Deputy Commissioners of Police, it stated.
The release stated, “The survey findings provide valuable insights into the public’s perception of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and assist the Commission in identifying specific measures to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Police Service on the whole and its leadership in particular. The Survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
“The Commission, therefore, urges everyone to take the survey and to be involved in making the vision of a police service that delivers the best possible safety and security outcomes to Trinidad and Tobago a reality.
“Last year’s survey results were presented in the Commission’s 2022 Annual Report, and this year’s findings will also be collated and presented in the 2023 Annual Report. “
The Commission is collaborating with government ministries and departments, non-governmental organisations, and private sector organisations to make the survey available on as many websites and social media sites as possible.
The survey is available on the Service Commissions Department’s website at https://scd.org.tt/
Members of the public can also complete the survey through quick response (QR) codes, which enable fast and easy access by anyone with a smartphone.
It stated that members of the public are not required to identify themselves in the survey.
The release stated, “All responses to the survey, opinions collected, information arising from the surveys, identifiers, and any information about respondents learned incidentally will be kept confidential and will not be discussed, disclosed, or disseminated.”
