City survey says 73% of people in Pueblo feel unsafe

A new city-wide survey in Pueblo shows that 73% of people in Pueblo feel unsafe in certain areas of town, day or night.

This is a 6% increase from 2012.

This was a seven-page survey sent out to 1500 random households. A total of 413 households responded.

How quickly police respond to emergencies is down by 8%, with 38% of households responding that they are dissatisfied with the response times.

The visibility of police in neighborhoods dropped 6%, with a total of 44% of households dissatisfied.

Police Chief Luis Velez tells us he is aware that he only has a limited number of police officers on duty day to day.

The majority of folks living in Pueblo we spoke with today agreed with the survey results.

Here is a link to the latest City Satisfaction Survey Results and the 2012 and 2010 results.
