CHPD Study of Community Oriented Policing Effectiveness
In the summer of 2014, the CHPD conducted a comprehensive community survey to gather citizen feedback and perceptions about Community Oriented Policing (COP) efforts in Columbia Heights, and to use this information as one of our performance measures in assessing our agency’s effectiveness.

While we are encouraged by the survey’s results, and proud of the work that’s been accomplished to date, we see that there is even more that we could be doing to make sure that Columbia Heights is an even safer and more connected community. To that end, we will continue to live out our core values of Committed, Helpful, Professional, and Dedicated while looking for even better ways to partner for a safer community.
