Perceptions of Police-Community Interactions

A team of local researchers have partnered with the Township, STPD, Multicultural Parents Association of Springfield Township School District, the Cheltenham Chapter of the NAACP, and Temple University to conduct a community-wide survey about police-community interactions. The survey will be conducted primarily in an online format and be accessed using the link below:


Participation in the survey is completely voluntary and all information provided, including the identity of respondents, will be kept anonymous.

Paper Surveys & Public Computers Available

The survey will also be made available in PDF for those who wish to print and return a completed survey for drop off at the Free Library. Residents are encouraged to complete the survey online to improve the efficiency of the analysis. If you don’t have a computer, smartphone or tablet, the public computers at the library can be used to complete the survey

The Township and STPD are committed to engaging in productive dialogue in assessing their policies and procedures to maximize community-police engagement and to identifying strategies to improve the level and quality of protection offered to all residents. The purpose of this survey is to receive community feedback that leads to conversations about how to improve said policies and enrich police-community relations in our Township. 

The survey deadline is April 30th.
