New Bedford Police Union survey highlights work environment, job conditions, issues


“A survey of New Bedford Police Union members was conducted on Thursday, September 14, 2023.

This climate survey was similar to the June survey, as it is meant to take stock of the opinions of employees regarding their job and work environment.

As we have previously mentioned, climate surveys may present more of a problem to administrators, as the information may result in administrators being limited in their ability to suggest they were unaware of employee issues or problems being present within the agency.

This information is being shared to give the public an idea of the current state of officer/employee opinions and perceptions. The scale is from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree) for most of the questions.

Questions about morale have a scale from 1 (Extremely Low) to 5 (Extremely High).

The survey was done by in-person, anonymous ballot in an effort to limit errors or problems which may have occurred with an online platform. Those issues were discussed in the June survey response post on Facebook.

There were eighty (80) responses, and the notice of the survey was made to the union body two days prior to the event.”-New Bedford Police Union.
