Local residents are urged to take an online survey to let the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office know how they’re doing and how they can better serve the community.
The survey will go live and be accessible beginning Monday at https://tinyurl.com/kvmrheuj, according to Deputy Jennifer Fleming.
Fleming said the survey is part of Sheriff Mark Crowe’s effort of fulfill a campaign promise made in 2020 to build relationships with the community. The survey has about 30 questions and follows a pair of community meetings Crowe and deputies held June 22 and 23 with community leaders, HOAs and others.
“He’s saying ‘we want you get to know you guys, and we want you to get to know us,’” Fleming added. “So the survey will help us do that. It helps give us a feel and knowledge for who’s in our community, and the other aspect of that is there’s a rating scale where they can tell us how they feel the sheriff’s office is performing, whether it’s good in certain areas or not so good in others. It’ll also allow residents to tell us what they would like to see as far as programs and services.”
Residents are encourage to take the survey online and will only be able to take it once, and must meet criteria to ensure they live in Bryan County, Fleming said.
“We want to get the lines of communication open and see what is needed in the community, and then once we get the results we can sit down with department heads and look at what we’re doing,” Fleming said. “It’s a way to show our community they’re our top priority.”
Residents who would rather take the survey on paper with a pen can contact Fleming at 95 Sgt. Robert W. Crapse Drive, Pembroke,31321 or call 912-653-3898.
