Community Survey on Policing

Dear Anne Arundel County Resident,

Public safety is the most fundamental obligation of our government. That obligation functions through the trust and accountability between our residents and our police department. Those relationships must be strong so that our communities remain safe.

As County Executive, I have worked with our police department and our residents to strengthen the trust and accountability built into those shared relationships. Through initiatives such as body worn cameras and the creation of a new Community Services Bureau, Police Chief Amal Awad and I have focused on efforts that foster ongoing transparency.

Through this work, we have developed a community survey on policing. Its purpose is to learn from our residents, and find ways to improve based on the information we gather. This survey is anonymous - we are not collecting your name or personal data, just your feedback on our department's work and its opportunities for growth.

I want to thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration and responses to this survey. Our communities can only thrive when they look out for one another, and trust those that look out for them.

Sincerely,
Steuart Pittman
Anne Arundel County Executive




Dear Anne Arundel County Resident,

The Anne Arundel County Police Department proudly serves a population of nearly 600,000 people. The members of this agency are committed to safeguarding our community and we recognize our contribution to the quality of life in the community through the law enforcement services we provide.

We are committed to meeting the challenge of providing these services by basing our thoughts and actions on the following recognized set of values that operate within the organization: professionalism, oath of office, loyalty, integrity, courage and ethics. These values are a set of shared common beliefs that contribute to the success of the department.

Our county government and police department will continue to collaborate with our residents to strengthen the trust and accountability built into those shared relationships. Initiatives such as body worn cameras and the creation of the police department's new Community Services Bureau will help foster ongoing transparency.

Building trust with our community rests at the cornerstone of 21st century policing, and that trust helps to solve crimes and increase the quality of life for residents. While our agency continues to receive valuable feedback from residents when we attend community events, we have developed a community survey on policing that will serve as another tool to provide us with important information to help us continue to grow as an agency and further connect with our community.

This survey is anonymous - we are not collecting your name or personal data, just your feedback on our department's work and its opportunities for growth.

I thank you for your support and for your consideration in responding to this survey.

Sincerely,
Amal E. Awad
Chief of Police
