Police Reform

Welcome to the City’s Police Reform Plan Stakeholder Information Page!

Through Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order No. 203, the Governor has charged local municipalities’ Chief Executive Officer and Chief of Police to present an action plan by April 1, 2021 to their governing body after a comprehensive review of current police force deployments, strategies, policies, procedures and practices, along with input from stakeholders.

Throughout the process, we will send out requests for feedback on policies and initiatives under consideration.
