Rate an officer: CPD asks citizens to rate interactions

The Cincinnati Police Department is seeking public comment from individuals to rate police officers they may have encounters with. 

Individuals who have had interactions with CPD officers can now rate those interactions as part of the National Police Research Platform's Police Community Interaction (PCI) Survey, administered by the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).

The Cincinnati Police Department is offering many of the individuals with whom they come into contact an opportunity to participate in a survey designed to collect information that could help improve police procedures and approaches in not only the Cincinnati Police Department but also in the state and nationwide.

The goal of the PCI survey is to collect data that will help establish new benchmarks for excellence in policing and thus help to improve the quality of police services delivered to the community. The Cincinnati Police Department is one of approximately 100 agencies to participate in the national program. Based on a pilot program that is part of the National Police Research Platform administered by UIC researchers, participating agencies will be able to use the survey data to monitor their performance and improve their training programs.

"The information gathered will assist the department with further improving service delivery to our community," says Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell. "No one asked to participate in the survey should be concerned that the information could be used in other ways."

The information will not be collected by the CPD, as all survey responses will be managed by the UIC researchers. The results provided to CPD will not include any information identifying the individuals responding to the survey or the officers involved in the contact, as this information is never provided to UIC researchers.

Police encounters that involve traffic accidents and stops, as well as most non-violent crimes, will be part of the survey.  Other encounters resulting from domestic violence, sexual assault or involving juveniles will not be surveyed.
