Public satisfaction with the work of the Saint John
Police Force is one of the key measures of police performance. This may also be
expressed as ‘fear of crime’. Each Strategic Planning cycle (approximately
every six years) the Force engages an independent survey-based research firm
(in 2014, Ipsos Reid) to conduct a substantial survey, analyze the results, and
report on the findings. The survey helps guide our operational and
administrative choices, and informs our strategic planning.
As stated by Ipsos Reid “ 2014 results indicate a notable
improvement in the performance of the Saint John Police Force on many levels
compared to four years ago”.
