The Oak Forest Police Department once again received satisfactory and very satisfactory responses from the majority of people who had contact with them, according to The Illinois Police-Community Interaction Survey administered by the University of Illinois at Chicago.
“I am extremely pleased that we continue to do well on these surveys,” Oak Forest Police Chief Greg Anderson said. “I know first-hand the high degree to which our officers hold themselves. It’s nice to know that residents see it as well and that their experiences with us are positive ones.”
People who had encounters with Oak Forest officers rated how they felt about the interactions. Overall, 88.9 percent of respondents reported they were either very satisfied or satisfied with the way they were treated.
The department will continue to participate in the program over the next several months and asks that people who are contacted participate by responding to the survey.
“The more responses we get, the more helpful the survey results will be to our department,” Anderson said.
