Public Safety Committee Seeks Input on Jamestown Police Reform Initiative Survey

(JAMESTOWN, NY) – The Jamestown City Council Public Safety Committee has released a survey as part of the Jamestown Police Reform Initiative. The survey is intended to solicit feedback from the community about the Jamestown Police Department. The link to answer the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/jpdreform 

Cities in New York State are required under a directive by Governor Andrew Cuomo to develop a plan that reinvents and modernizes police strategies and programs in their community based on community input. Each police agency’s reform plan must address policies, procedures, practices and deployment, including, but not limited to use of force. Police forces must adopt a plan by April 1, 2021 to be eligible for future state funding

 The survey will be open to respond to from now until November 1, 2020.

For questions on the survey can be directed to the Mayor’s Office by calling (716) 483-7600 or emailing mayor@jamestownny.gov.
