From the Town: Governor’s Executive Order 203: NYS Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative
On June 12th, 2020, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed Executive Order 203, establishing the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative. This order mandated that every government unit in New York State with a police department must develop a plan to improve the deployment, strategies, policies, procedures and practices of law enforcement within their community.
The Town of Irondequoit and the Irondequoit Police Department welcome this charge, as we are committed to addressing the needs of all members of our community served by our police, as well as working to establish trust, fairness and accountability in our efforts to ensure there is equity in the administration of law enforcement.
On February 16th, the Irondequoit Town Board received the draft plan, created after months of community engagement and dialogue. A public hearing has been scheduled for March 16th, 2021 at 7:35pm, where the Town Board will receive formal comment on the plan, the final form of which must be adopted by April 1st, 2021.
The Town Board will also be receiving written testimony from members of the community, which may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be entered into the formal record.
