The Houston Mayor's Task Force on Policing Reform extended its submission deadline for a survey among Houston neighborhoods to collect opinions from residents.

An original Aug. 9 deadline was extended to Aug. 22, a press release announced Aug. 13.

The survey asks residents to respond to two basic questions: "How do you view the Houston Police Department?" and "Would you recommend any improvements or changes to the Houston Police Department?" with open-ended space to explain their opinion.

Mayor Sylvester Turner appointed the task force in June amid nationwide calls for reductions in police funding and reforms to law-enforcement practices after the death of George Floyd. The group first met July 6 and was given 90 days to develop recommendations.
