In June 2023, the Fairfax County (Virginia) Police Department launched a new public survey to better understand residents’ trust and satisfaction with the department. The survey instrument, Blockwise, will allow the police department to holistically understand neighborhood issues while improving the agency’s responsiveness to local community concerns and priorities.
As Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis said: “This effort represents a belief that we can only improve what is measured. With this survey we will collect better data and be more responsive to the concerns and issues of our residents, in addition to our existing focus on reducing crime and disorder.” Chief Davis held a press conference to announce the launch of the survey tool.
