Hello everyone, I've been assigned to do a research for my Public Administration Class.

The research is about any public agency in N.Y.C., like the FDNY, NYPD, MTA, Public housing, Etc. I choose The NYPD because I like that field. (Law Enforcement), and I'm a interested to know about how the society thinks and feel about that agency. I was assigned to do the research a couple of weeks ago before i knew this site. if i knew it before I would have chosen the MTA, since this website is mostly about it, and you guys know much better, but dont worry this are just 20 simple questions. this is anonymous, only for my research purposes, and at the same time I think is a good topic to talk about. Thanks in advanced.

First of all question 1-9 is totally irrelevant for your research. If you want to know what we think about NYPD the questions beginning from 10 and below is sufficient enough. No need for personal information unless off course you're the IRS. You asked too many questions and people on this forum don't have the time to answer all these questions for you. Most of these folks are bus drivers and train operators. They only have a limited time to seat down and chat with you. And don't assume that we can remain anonymous, we all have a network card and an IP address. If that IP address is registered to a personal computer then Harry the website administrator can find out who this computer is registered under. SO remaining anonymous now days doesn't cut it.


If you're going to ask us about our personal information, then we deserve the right to know your name, address, date of birth and your SS number. How would you like that?
