The employees of the Brooklyn Police Department thank you for participating in our Community Satisfaction Survey. Your feedback is important to us. We particularly thank participants for their individual comments, as these will serve to strengthen our department by pointing out ways we can better deliver our services and by highlighting issues that we might not have considered. We are ever mindful that our department’s effectiveness is ultimately determined by the confidence and cooperation of the community we serve.

Thank you again for your time and participation.
