The Queensland Police Service (QPS) has extended an invitation to all residents of Moreton Bay to share their perspectives on local crime and safety concerns.

Through an anonymous 10-minute survey, community members are encouraged to contribute their views, aiding in the understanding of local issues and facilitating collaborative efforts to maintain community safety.

Titled the “Perceptions of Crime and Safety” survey, its primary objective is to establish a channel for community members to communicate their concerns regarding crime and safety to the Queensland Police Service. Emphasising the QPS’s commitment to providing a secure environment for Queensland residents, the survey seeks to address prevalent community concerns and enhance preventive measures.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous, with respondents assured that their identities will remain confidential. The information collected will be aggregated and analysed to inform future crime prevention initiatives, adhering to the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld) guidelines.

Respondents are not obligated to disclose their identities, and withdrawal from the survey is permissible at any stage. However, once submitted, responses cannot be retracted due to the anonymity protocol. The survey, designed in compliance with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research 2018 and the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research 2007, assures participants of confidentiality.

Residents are reassured that their participation or lack thereof will not affect their relationship with the Queensland Police Service. The survey is estimated to take no more than eight to 10 minutes to complete.

Community members are encouraged to take part in this initiative to contribute to the ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of Moreton Bay residents.
