NY police dept. asks suspects to take survey

Survey questions include whether police clearly explained the reason for a stop

Associated Press

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — You have the right to remain silent, but would you mind taking part in our survey?

The Schenectady (skeh-NEHK'-ta-dee) Police Department is conducting surveys of the people it tickets, arrests or assists in an effort to improve service to the public.

Schenectady Police Chief Mark Chaires on Wednesday urged people to participate in the survey, which he called "a report card" on how the law enforcement agency is performing its duties and how it can improve services.

Survey questions include whether police clearly explained the reason for a stop and how satisfied the person was with how they were treated.

The answers will be compiled and turned into a report to help the department keep or alter practices.

The Syracuse Police Department is also conducting surveys.
