Polco is a civic engagement platform helping cities collect ongoing, civil, reliable community sentiment with the ease of online engagement and with the reliability of analog surveys. Citizens can participate in ongoing discussions without attending town halls. Polco is being used to enhance civic engagement and discussions around the country.
Polco was founded by a team of military and public service veteran technologists who are passionate about good governance and civil constructive civic engagement. We believe there is collective intelligence in a community, but the conversations need to be structured the right way. If they are, we can together unlock insights that can help get input from more than just the vocal few, improve city service delivery, save staff time, build stronger connectivity, and improve resident quality of life.
