The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards has launched a community survey, to determine how much the public trusts in law enforcement.

MCOLES says in a release Thursday that the survey was put in motion by an executive order from Governor Rick Snyder in October 2016, that told the organization to complete a public report on trust in police by May 2017.

Commission Chair Sheriff Jerry Clayton says,

“The report will offer practical steps that can be taken to strengthen police community relations and enhance the legitimacy of law enforcement in Michigan.

The survey will help MCOLES form a report to be given to Governor Snyder, that will lay out recommendations to "strengthen public trust and confidence in law enforcement in communities across Michigan."

The survey, which will remain open until March 20, 2017, can be taken online by clicking here. The survey does not ask for names, or other personal information.

MCOLES is a state commission that sets Michigan's Law Enforcement standards.
