You could be called for a survey beginning September 6 as the Estevan Police Service (EPS) collects feedback on crime and their performance in the city.

A release from the EPS said Prairie Research Associates will be randomly calling Estevan phone numbers, including landlines and mobile devices, using postal code information.

The callers will identify themselves as Prairie Research Associates employees.

Questions will deal with topics including police effectiveness, police responsiveness, visibility and presence of police, fear of crime, and trust and confidence in police.

"The Estevan Police Service wants to reassure residents that this is a legitimate survey and part of the Service’s ongoing commitment to gather public input in an objective manner," said the release. "Participation in this survey is completely voluntary, but the Estevan Police Service encourages residents to take the opportunity to provide their feedback if contacted for this survey."

Members of the EPS or people living with members will be excluded.

"Our goal is to ensure we are aligned with the priorities of the community while we strive to provide exceptional service."

The Community Perceptions Survey results are expected to be made public early in the new year.

You can contact the EPS at 306-634-4767 for more information.
