Survey: Yonkers police treat people fairlyPosted: Updated:
The Yonkers Police Department says it's doing a good job of interacting with the community.
Police Commissioner Charles Gardner announced the results of a public opinion survey conducted over the summer.
Residents were given the chance to weigh in on how officers handle issues and whether they treat neighbors with respect. "Eighty-four percent were satisfied with the YPD acting in a professional manner. Seventy-nine percent reported our officers treated people fairly. Seventy-seven percent have a trust and confidence in the Yonkers PD," says Gardner.
Gardner says while the police department is pleased with the overall results, there is still room for improvement, especially with victim outreach services and increased traffic control.
