Community Safety Survey

Annual Community Safety Survey

Each year in December the Inver Grove Heights Police Department invites all who live, work, or visit the City of Inver Grove Heights to complete our annual Community Safety Survey.

The survey is completely anonymous and covers a range of questions, including geographic and demographic background, perceptions of safety, and policing priority preferences.

The survey helps police personnel and City officials better understand the community safety perceptions, quality-of-life issues, as well as, the public safety concerns of residents, business owners, and those who work for an Inver Grove Heights-based business. We also invite those who regularly visit or travel through Inver Grove Heights to provide feedback and input.

With the growth, Inver Grove Heights is experiencing it is the police departments top priority to maintain the safety and quality-of-life our residents and business community have come to expect. The information received from the survey will help members of the police department formulate our policing strategy for the next year.

Residents without access to the internet can call the Inver Grove Heights Police Department at 651-450-2525 to receive a paper version of the survey by U.S. Mail.

The Community Safety Survey usually takes about 10 minutes to complete and can be obtained by visiting the link below during the survey period.
