A local firm, Allegro Training & Consulting, is conducting an independent survey commissioned through the City of Lawrence, to determine Lawrence citizen’s sense of engagement, interaction, safety, and support with their local Lawrence Kansas Police Department. This is an anonymous survey designed as a tool to generate ideas and insights for improved relations and law enforcement practices with the Lawrence Police Department and the citizens they serve.

The survey runs from August 7 to September 24, 2017 and is accessible online:

Allegro Training & Consulting will present summary survey results at a future City Commission Meeting and summary information will be made available in public formats.

Survey findings along with recommendations will be developed by Allegro Training & Consulting staff and reviewed by a diverse/multicultural/intersectional community review board. The final findings and recommendations will be reported in general terms with relevant data including (but not limited to) gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomics, etc. As part of the Lawrence Police Departments commitment to excellence in Community Policing, they are anticipating using the results of this survey in their ongoing strategic planning in the areas of: Recruiting & Hiring, Officer/Civilian Development, Citizen Engagement and Measurement & Evaluation tools.
