No one likes to be told how to do their job, but the West Vancouver Police Department is taking suggestions.
The force has launched an online survey for citizens to offer their thoughts on WVPD's performance as well as what their priorities should be for the coming year as part of the annual strategic plan.
"The WVPD strategic planning process reflects our commitment to excellence within the West Vancouver police and a commitment to the community we proudly serve," states a press release from the department. "Our strategic plans help identify and prepare for challenges ahead while continuing to provide the top quality police service our community needs."
The survey, which can be found at wvpd.ca, asks users for basic demographic information before getting into rating the department on its performance and asking how safe people feel in West Vancouver and on Squamish Nation band lands. It also asks users to rank 10 different priorities - such as violent crime, drug offences or cyclist safety - that police should be focusing on.
Information from the survey will be compiled and used to help create the 2014-2016 strategic plan, which will be presented next year.
Participants' identities are kept completely anonymous.
