Public Safety Survey

Dear Members, Partners, and Friends,

Crime and public safety have become prominent concerns for everyone in the City of Chicago, including those of us who were fortunate enough to be largely unaffected by the issue until the last few years. We hear about it regularly from our members and partners, who understandably demand to know what can be done (and what we are doing) to help address the problem.

This situation requires more than the typical guidance about attending beat meetings, calling 911, and being aware of one’s surroundings. With this in mind, RNRA’s leadership team has been working for several months to develop a more extensive set of recommendations, which were published on September 28, 2022.

We’ve chosen to release this material in the form of a survey, which gives our members and other stakeholders the opportunity to express support for, or opposition to, our suggestions, and also to submit other serious ideas for consideration.

In our view, there’s no more important conversation taking place at this moment and we encourage everyone who loves this city as we do, to participate. The top-line results will be posted on this page, updated periodically, and shared with City, County, and State officials.

The survey can be accessed here, or by clicking the button below.

Thank you.
