Press Release - Whitecourt launched online survey on community policing

Whitecourt has launched an online survey to provide community members the opportunity to share their opinions on community policing. 

The data gathered will provide valuable information about service levels, needs and priorities for policing in our community.   Information gained from the survey will be used by the Whitecourt Protective Services Committee and the Whitecourt RCMP as part of ongoing efforts to enhance service to the community and to develop local policing priorities in the short and long term.

“The Town of Whitecourt and Whitecourt RCMP have a close and respected relationship.  We have launched this survey in partnership to help identify local priorities and develop local policing plans that best meet the needs of our community,” stated Whitecourt Mayor Maryann Chichak.  “I strongly encourage all residents and business owners from Whitecourt to participate.”

Survey participants will be asked their opinion and satisfaction of current services, and how the community could be served better.  The Police Services Community Satisfaction Survey will be conducted annually to ensure policing priorities are current for the community.

“Getting input and feedback from the people that live and work in our community is extremely valuable,” added Director of Community Safety Doug Tymchyshyn. “Not only will the information collected this year help shape future programs and priorities, but it will also establish a benchmark to which we can compare to and build on from year to year.”

A link to the Whitecourt Police Services Community Satisfaction Survey is available on  The survey will close at 4:30 p.m. on October 18, 2019.
