The Seattle Police Department (SPD) survey on Seattle Public Safety, administered by Seattle University, is open through Thursday, November 30th. Per SPD:
“If you have crime or safety concerns, this is your opportunity to voice your opinion. A report on the survey results will be provided to the Seattle Police Department to assist in making Seattle neighborhoods safer and more secure. The survey is accessible through November 30th and is available in 11 languages.”

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete, go here and provide your feedback by Thursday, November 30th.
