Public Perceptions of Crime and Policing

Survey results will be used to help inform how the RFIP provide a public service and it is planned to repeat this assessment of public perceptions at least every two years. We will be able to compare the results of this survey with the findings from the 2012 survey, to see if perceptions and opinions have changed over time.


Questions are asked across a range of different topics and aspects of the service the RFIP provide, including:

  • people’s experiences with contacting the RFIP, in both emergency and non-emergency situations, and how satisfied they were with their most recent contact;
  • how people perceive the RFIP and how satisfied they are with their performance over the last 12 months;
  • people’s perceptions of crime and anti-social behaviour in the area where they live, and the police response to any issues;
  • public perception of police effectiveness in emergency and non-emergency situations; and
  • public satisfaction with visibility of the police.



If you have any questions, you may contact the Police Station by calling +500 28100, or emailing:
