Dennis Police Want to Hear From You
Chief Peter DiMatteo announced today that the Dennis Police Department is embarking on a strategic planning process to map out the Department’s direction for the next 5 years. As the first step in that process the Department has established a survey for residents, visitors and people who have a commercial interest in the Town of Dennis.
Beginning Thursday, June 21, 2018, the survey will be available in both hard copy and electronic survey format. The Department will be looking to local connections such as the Chamber of Commerce, libraries, community groups and blockwatch groups to spread the word. It is important that we hear from our community and what is important to them regarding public safety.
The survey provides an opportunity for citizens to comment on current conditions throughout the Town including the perception of crime, quality of life concerns, citizens’ perception of safety and security and what enforcement activities or services people would like to see improved or strengthened.
The survey process will be available from June 21st through July 31st 2018. The Department will quantify the survey results and begin producing a plan for further action. Chief DiMatteo said he hopes to make a presentation to the Board of Selectmen in the fall.
The surveys will be available in hard copy at the following locations: Dennis Police Department, Dennis Town Hall, Dennis Libraries and Dennis Senior Center. Collection boxes for the surveys will also be available at these same locations.
The electronic survey can be accessed at the following Internet address:
