LEWISTON POLICE SURVEY - 2021

NYS Governor Cuomo Executive Order 203 requires each law enforcement agency in NYS to create a police reform and reinvention plan in a collaborative manner with the community. The plans need to be approved by the Town of Lewiston Board and submitted to NYS by April 1, 2021. NYS is referring to this process as the NYS Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative.

 According to the NYS Governor Cuomo’s office: “the purpose of the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative is to foster trust, fairness, and legitimacy within communities throughout our State and to address any racial bias and disproportionate policing of communities of color.”

The Police Reform Committee is tasked with reaching out to the community to gather input on policing. As part of the community outreach efforts, a community survey on policing has been created.  Your participation in the survey will assist in shaping the plan.  Please complete the survey by noon on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.  The link is available here: https://forms.gle/yhHwhYAJSewvxKVMA
