You do not need to be a resident of Newport to take the 16-question survey.  You may come into contact with multiple law enforcement agencies, but please answer the questions thinking only about the Newport Police Department. Please indicate your response to each item by selecting the appropriate answer based on your feelings, opinions, and experiences. You may skip any survey items you do not feel comfortable responding to or know how to answer, but we encourage you to respond to as many items as possible. Participation in the survey is confidential.  The Police Advisory Committee appreciates your time and participation.

The survey is available electronically at or in person at Newport City Hall, Library, Rec Center, and 60+ Center.  The survey is available through Nov. 10, 2021. 

The survey results are scheduled for review at the October 27, 2021 Police Advisory Committee meeting.  The meeting will be available on the City’s website at, or Charter cable channel 190.
