Lawrence city commissioners should act quickly to arrange for the public release of a survey conducted last year to assess community perceptions of local police.
After all, a consultant, paid $20,000 to conduct the survey, said she completed the work months ago and provided a final report to the city.
The survey, conducted last summer by Allegro Training and Consulting, asked Lawrence residents to assess their interactions with local police, including appropriate use of force, existence of bias and handling of complaints. Beth Clark, CEO of Allegro, told the Kansas City Star that said she sent her final report to the city in April. Theres no reason it cant be put out to the public, Clark said. Its completely done.
