NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton is Quizzing Cops About Their Jobs
The voluntary survey contains 33 questions and allows cops to answer anonymously. The survey was sent out to cops and is part of Bratton’s Reengineering 2014 Initiative, according to a letter attached to the test.
The 33-question questionnaire, obtained by the Daily News, is part of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton’s Reengineering 2014 Initiative, a letter attached to the test states.
In one section, the voluntary survey asks cops what they do when they’re unsure how to handle a situation.
“How often do you turn to the following sources for guidance?”
The survey asks them if they consult with various superiors, training guides or fellow officers. It then offers them a final option: “I don’t, I wing it.”
The questionnaire also asks cops what type of training they’d like to receive and includes the options “radiation nuclear awareness,” “cultural diversity training” and “public interaction course.”
They are also asked to evaluate training they’ve received in the past and can specify whether they “strongly agree,” “agree,” “disagree” or “strongly disagree” that the training was beneficial.
Another question asks them what part of their jobs they feel least confident in, and includes the options “dealing with the public generally,” “verbal de-escalation/verbal judo” and “proper use of force.”
