ESTEVAN - The Estevan Police Service is advising the public of an upcoming public survey, beginning on Sept. 6.

The Community Perceptions of the Estevan Police survey is designed to gather feedback on several topics related to public perceptions of the EPS and crime in our city.

Prairie Research Associates will be gathering the survey data by randomly selecting Estevan residents’ phone numbers – both landlines and mobile phones – using postal code information. The callers conducting the survey will identify themselves as Prairie Research Associate employees.

Questions will relate to topics such as police effectiveness and responsiveness; visibility and presence of police; fear of crime; and trust and confidence in police.

"The Estevan Police Service wants to reassure residents that this is a legitimate survey and part of the service’s ongoing commitment to gather public input in an objective manner. Participation in this survey is completely voluntary, but the Estevan Police Service encourages residents to take the opportunity to provide their feedback if contacted for this survey," the EPS said in a news release.

Anyone working for the EPS or living with someone who currently works for the agency will be excluded.

Any member of the public who has concerns or questions about the survey may contact the EPS at 306-634-4767 and their call will be directed appropriately.

The EPS thanks the public in advance for their time and input into police practices and processes.

The results of the survey will be made public in early 2024 through a presentation to the Estevan board of police commissioners and at
