Policing Review Committee


In June, Governor Cuomo enacted an executive order on Police Reform and Reinvention requiring each government entity in New York which has a police agency to perform a comprehensive review of current police force deployments, strategies, policies, procedures and practices and develop a plan to improve these areas. This coincided with a similar request by the New Rochelle City Council, also in June 2020. The Policing Review Committee members were announced by City Manager Charles B. Strome,III on August 17. The Committee will meet in August and September, and a draft report is expected for presentation to City Council in October. The Governor's Executive Order requires a report submission by April 1, 2021.

The Police Review Committee will examine the following issues:

• Use of Force policy/training

• Data disclosure and transparency

• Community engagement

• Oversight/Discipline/Complaint procedures

• Equipment

• Other issues
