New survey to look at public satisfaction with police
A new survey is to launched next week at the District A police station with a view to accessing public satisfaction, or lack thereof, with the current level of police services.
Speaking to reporters after the opening of a Boys To Men Workshop, Director of the National Task Force on Crime Prevention Cheryl Willoughby also announced that her department had undergone a name change, and should now be referred to as the Criminal Justice Research and Planning Unit.
“The name change reflects our research arm and the planning opponent speaks to the crime prevention work that we are currently engaged in.
“We want to also look at the formulation of policy documents so as to inform legislation in policy and programming,” said, Willoughby, whose unit also has plans of carrying out research on gangs, gun violence and marijuana use, as well as Barbados’ spending on crime.
