A new survey sheds a positive light on the Chicago police department.
“The Sun-Times” reports police Superintendent Garry McCarthy asked the University of Illinois at Chicago to measure the quality of police encounters with the public.
From traffic stops to 911 calls, anyone who had contact with officers over the past year was asked to participate in the survey.
Less than 10% responded to the survey, but of those 4,000 people, more than 80-percent said they were satisfied with their experience.
Whites tended to be more satisfied, while the numbers were slightly lower for Blacks and Latinos.
