A poll released this week on crime shows more than half of those asked in Regina feel they are safe.
That news doesn’t surprise Regina’s Police Chief.
Evan Bray says it is something they were already aware of, thanks to work the Regina Police Service conducts.
“We do our own crime and community perception survey bi-annually. That consistently shows us that people have faith and trust in our service and have a feeling of safety in the community,” Bray said.
Bray adds that feeling and perception is a result of the interaction they have in the community and the visibility police have.
The poll showed 57 percent of Reginans asked considered themselves to be very or somewhat safe living in the city.
