Welcome to the Town of East Greenbush Police Reform and Reinvention Collabrative webpage.
What is Police Reform and Reinvention Collabrative?
Pursuant to Executive Order No. 203 issued by Governor Cuomo, each local government entity which has a police agency must perform a comprehensive review of current police force deployments, strategies, policies, procedures, and practices, and develop a plan for improvement to address the particular needs of the community, promote community engagement, foster trust, fairness, and legitimacy, and to address any racial bias and disproportionate policing of communities of color. The draft plan shall be offered for public comment and shall be presented to the Town Board to ratify or adopt no later than April 1, 2021.
Who is Involved?
In response to the Executive Order, the Town Board will convene a committee of community stakeholders to develop such plan.
