In early 2020, the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) proactively partnered with Transparency Matters, LLC to conduct an independent and comprehensive assessment of the department's use of force. As part of a holistic approach to understanding use of force activities, the CSPD additionally contracted the Transparency Matters research team to develop and independently analyze a survey of community members.
There are multiple ways for community members to participate in the survey. Various physical copies have been distributed to community groups and locations throughout the city. Community members can also:
- Complete the survey online
- Fill out a physical copy at a local substation

Surveys will be accepted from May 27 – June 25.
