In its continued commitment to community engagement, the Halton Police Board is proud to unveil its latest community survey. This concise survey invites the citizens of the Halton Region to provide valuable input that will directly influence the forthcoming Strategic Plan for policing.
Chair Jeff Knoll underscores the significance of this community-driven approach, commenting, “As the governing body for Halton’s policing, it is our responsibility to ensure our police initiatives align seamlessly with the community’s needs, values, and expectations. Feedback from our diverse Halton community – residents, workers, students, and entrepreneurs alike – is instrumental in tailoring police policies and goals, ensuring a safer and harmonious future for all.”
Renowned Canadian research agency Advanis has been entrusted with administering the survey, ensuring it remains voluntary and confidential. Add your perspective to this pivotal dialogue by receiving your unique link to complete the survey:

The survey should take approximately 5-8 minutes to complete.
Why do I need to provide my email address or phone number?
This allows Advanis to ensure that a unique person, and not a computer “bot”, is completing the survey. This way the survey contains real input from real people.
OK, but if I provide my email address or phone number, how do I know that my survey responses will not be associated with my name?
Advanis is hired by Halton Police Board in part for this reason. Halton Police Board will never have access to the email addresses and phone numbers that are sent to Advanis to get a survey link. And the survey responses go into a database for analysis that is totally separate from where the contact information goes. So Advanis won’t tie any survey data to who did the survey. Indeed, the survey analysis will be completed at an “aggregate” level: all Halton Region residents, all Burlington residents, and so on. Advanis will not report individual responses.
OK, but how do I know Advanis will do this?
Advanis has been in business for over 30 years. It is a member of the Canadian Research and Insights Council (https://www.canadianresearchinsightscouncil.ca/), which has a code of ethics that Advanis must follow which is summarized in the CRIC Pledge to Canadians: https://www.canadianresearchinsightscouncil.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/CRIC-Pledge-to-Canadians.pdf
This survey is also registered with the Canadian Research Insights Council’s (CRIC) Research Verification Service. The project verification number is: 20230829-AD067. Click https://www.canadianresearchinsightscouncil.ca/rvs/home/?lang=en/20230829-AD067 to verify the legitimacy of this survey.
