Make Your Voice Heard:

Help Us Keep Westminster Safe!

Westminster Public Safety Advisory Council Online Survey Remains Available Through May 31st

Westminster, MD – In early-May the City of Westminster’s Public Safety Advisory Council initiated an online survey to gain the perspective of Westminster residents, business owners/operators, and visitors on safety-related matters in the City. Through May 21st, more than 1,150 citizens have responded to the survey. The survey remains available through May 31st to those who wish to offer their thoughts and opinions about this important topic. The link to the survey is available on the home page of the City of Westminster’s website, The online survey only takes 2-3 minutes to complete. Those who provide their email address at the end of the survey will have a chance to win a $25 gift card to a downtown Westminster restaurant.

The Westminster Mayor and Common Council established the Westminster Public Safety Advisory Council in early 2017 to more actively engage and collaborate with the community on issues relating to public safety. The Council consists of 10 to 12 local community members; geographic diversity is taken into consideration in selecting the group’s members to ensure that all areas of the City are represented and have a voice.

Ed Cramer, who chairs the Westminster Public Safety Advisory Council, stated “I am very pleased with the survey response thus far and hope that others will take the time to share their thoughts between now and May 31st. The results of the survey will help to guide the efforts of the Public Safety Advisory Council as we work with the Police Department and our elected officials to ensure the quality of life in Westminster. We hope to share the preliminary results of the survey with the Mayor and Common Council at their next meeting on June 25th.”

Common Council Member Tony Chiavacci, founder of the Public Safety Advisory Council, stated “I am thrilled with the response to the PSAC survey and grateful for the work that the committee has put into it. Indications are that it is going to provide useful information to the Chief of Police, the Mayor and the Common Council for future decisions.”
