Census Bureau to Begin Household Contacts in February
This is a reminder that the U.S. Census Bureau will begin delivering census questionnaires through the mail and by hand from February - August 2010. Field staff members will be working in neighborhoods to deliver paperwork, collect information, and verify addresses during this period.
According to the Census website (http://2010.census.gov/2010census/about/whole.php), they will only conduct face to face visits at households from which they do not receive a form in the mail, so please consider preparing and returning your Census forms as they are received if you do not wish to be visited.
Law Enforcement agencies across the U.S. are expecting to see an increase in calls on suspicious persons this year due to census workers being out in neighborhoods and we have received a guide from the Census Bureau on how to determine the validity of their IDs, so please be vigilant throughout this period and don't hesitate to call us if you witness suspicious persons in your area - don't assume they are from the Census Bureau as many would-be criminals may use this as a cover to commit crimes.
You can learn more about the Census and how they will be collecting data at www.census.gov.
