A survey done for the Windsor Police Service has found a vast majority of Windsorites.

More than 400 people took part in a telephone survey back in July and 94 per cent said they feel safe.

Of the respondents, 88 per cent of them said they have confidence in the police.

Windsor Police Chief Al Frederick is satisfied, and said the results will be used for future planning.

"It does provide a benchmark for great improvement, and those are the areas that we'll focus on as a senior leadership team and as an organization. How can we improve?" Frederick said. "That's what the data is there for. It's not to give accolades, but to help us in defining what we will do in the future."

Frederick said it's the first what he called "in-depth" community satisfaction survey like this conducted in Windsor.
