The Carleton University Neighbourhood Policing survey is ongoing

The Neighbourhood Policing Survey is still active online. Students who are currently registered in Sprott School of Business’ MBA class on Managing Change have developed this survey to help the Ottawa Police Service better understand the safety and security issues experienced by those living in Vanier/Overbrook as well as their satisfaction with the police services available in their neighbourhood. Information from this survey will inform the decisions regarding the direction of the neighbourhood resource team program.  It will also provide benchmark data which will allow the OPS to evaluate the effectiveness of the neighbourhood resource teams. 

If you haven’t already done so, complete the survey to help provide good representation of all members of the neighbourhood:
