Chico Police Receive High Marks in Survey; CPD Looking for Input on Noise Ordinance

A recent survey of Chico residents gives the Chico Police Department excellent marks. The survey was carried out from October of last year to January of this year by criminal justice students at Chico State University. Assistant Professor Jon Caudill, who helped organize the survey, says it’s incorrect to think the university is always a hotbed of resistance to the police.  The survey found that 90 percent of those surveyed thought their neighborhood was “safe or very safe” during the day and 70 percent found their neighborhood “safe or very safe” after dark.

Meanwhile, the Chico Police Department revisiting its “noise ordinance” today. Police say they’re looking for feedback from the community and student population regarding proposed charges to that ordinance. A special meeting is planned for tonight at 5:30 PM at the BMU at Chico State.
