Many municipalities now utilize "customer satisfaction" surveys to determine how
residents view the quality of police services. In a 2009 survey of residents in Kansas
City, Missouri, citizens in areas that had the highest incidence of crime rated "quality

listed "crime fighting" as the #1 priority.

low crime community, implications for police) as well as posting a response on two
other class member discussions.
