2007 Chula Vista Police Department Resident Opinion Survey

The Criminal Justice Research Division first administered the Chula Vista Resident Opinion Survey in 1997. The survey was conducted as a way to obtain a baseline reading of the opinions of Chula Vista residents about the Chula Vista Police Department. It was administered again in 2000, 2003, 2005, and 2007 to serve as a comparison tool to determine what changes had occurred with respect to respondents' perceptions.

All five surveys address issues relating to crime and levels of safety in the community, concern regarding issues in the neighborhood, and opinion of police priorities. These surveys of individuals provide an effective means of assessing satisfaction with local law enforcement, informing the public about police services, and advising the police administrators about public safety concerns.

In October 2007 the results of the most recent resident opinion survey was presented in a report to the Chula Vista Police Department and City Council.
