Community Survey


The Springfield Police Department is asking Springfield community members to participate in an online survey to share their input about local public safety concerns, the recent work of our officers, and priorities for the coming year.  The survey results will help identify department priorities and be used to develop strategies for enhancing public safety and police-community relations.

Residents interested in completing the community survey are encouraged to go to the Springfield Police Department home webpage and use the listed QR code or link to access the online survey. The survey is available in both English and Spanish. The survey will remain open until January 22, 2022. Springfield residents are asked to complete the community survey one time per person.

The Springfield Police Department partnered with Portland State University (PSU) to administer the survey. In alignment with PSU research team direction, a representative random sample of 7,500 Springfield residential addresses were invited to complete the community survey from December 3, 2021 to January 3, 2022. After the completion of the random sample portion of the community survey, the wider Springfield community are now invited to provide their input.

The PSU research team will develop a final report and participate in at least one community meeting to share survey results and key findings with City leadership, City Council and the community.
