There's absolutely no "catch" to this, no spam or pop-ups, etc. It's to help with a college student's project, as you'll read below. I (Ted Czech) took it and I think the total time was maybe 3.5-4 minutes.
Kevin E. Peterson, CPP, principal consultant with Innovative Protection Solutions, LLC in Herndon, Va., recently sent this email:
"One of my grad students at Webster has prepared a survey as part of his capstone research project. His topic relates to the relations between community members and Police/Security professionals, particularly where racial or social tensions are high. The survey is available online via the Survey Monkey tool. There are only six questions and it should take just a few minutes to complete."

"I was wondering if you could share this with your colleagues and friends through IFPO, York College or other channels as you feel appropriate. We're seeking responses from Law Enforcement professionals, Security professionals, community leaders and students. I'm also reaching out to the ASIS Law Enforcement Liaison Council, Security Services Council and Crime Prevention Council to request their support. Any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!!"
