In October, 2020, we conducted a survey of Long Branch residents to help identify their primary areas of concern about safety in the neighbourhood.
To make up the survey questions, we drew from examples of community safety surveys done in Canada and the US. As well, we based some of the issues on the Toronto Police Service’s crime statistics that they monitor each month.
We also asked for opinions on the relative effectiveness of a number of safety measures that could be implemented.
In all, we received 114 responses, which, considering the small population of our neighbourhood, should give us 95% confidence level the findings are representative of the population as a whole.
Due to time limitations, we were only able to present a snapshot of the findings at the LBNA’s Annual General Meeting on November 18th. We have the final full report of the survey below in PDF format so you can read it in its entirety.

When we put together our survey questionnaire, there may have been items or issues missing from it that you may have thought to be important. Please let us know about these so we can make next year’s community safety survey more effective.
If you’d like to help make Long Branch a safer community, we need volunteers to help with organizing petitions, collecting signatures, writing blog posts and so on.
