Mayor Greenberg encourages community participation in survey for selection of permanent police chief
Online community survey for input on new full time police chief open until May 12, takes just minutes to complete.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 3, 2023) – Hoping to hear from community members from every corner of the city, Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg is asking residents to take part in an online survey about what they would like to see in the next permanent Chief of Police for Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD). The survey, which can be found at the top of the city’s website, www.louisvilleky.gov or here, takes only a few minutes to complete.
“Leading our police department is an enormous job, and whoever becomes our permanent Chief of Police needs to have a firm understanding of what the community expects of them,” Mayor Greenberg said. “Taking part in this survey and letting us know what you want to see in our next permanent Chief of Police is one of the quickest, easiest and most effective ways you can make your voice heard in this important decision.”
The survey allows community members to answer a series of questions about what qualifications, public safety priorities and leadership qualities they would like to see in the next permanent Chief of Police. Additionally, there is space for open ended comments where any other ideas, thoughts or concerns can be shared directly with Mayor Greenberg.
The survey is part of the initial public outreach and community input stages of the search for a permanent Chief of Police for LMPD. The survey, which was developed with the help of outside firm Public Sector Search & Consulting, will remain available online until Friday, May 12, at 5 p.m. Anyone requiring assistance answering the survey can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 916-789-9990.
