We are asking members of the community for five minutes of their time to complete the survey to help us gain perspective on what we are doing well, where we can improve, and what concerns they may have. The results will be utilized to enhance policing services, and to direct the department as we strive to provide the most responsive, cost efficient, and professional police services possible.

A notice for the survey will also be included in the Town of Purcellville Newsletter, “Purcellville Post,” located within the upcoming December water/sewer bill for town residents. In addition, officers will have copies of the QR code available to scan during their foot patrols, business checks, and Purcellville Police Department community-related events.
