Governor Cuomo Announces New Guidance for Police Reform Collaborative to Reinvent and Modernize Policing

The Village of Depew has formed a committee to carry out a task set forth by NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo that is to be completed by April 1st, 2021. We will be meeting on Monday December 7th, 2020 @ 6:30PM Virtually due to the current "Orange Zone" status that most of WNY is under. Your will be able to view the ZOOM meeting on the Village of Depew's page via Facebook Live. Meetings are scheduled to take place on the 1st and 3rd Mondays for the months of December, January, February and March.

Guidance Offers Framework, Resources for 'New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative' Established by Governor's Executive Order in June; Localities Must Adopt a Plan by April 1, 2021 to Be Eligible for Future State Funding.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced new guidance for the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative, which was established by the Governor's Executive Order in June. The guidance offers a framework and topics for consideration by local police departments, elected officials and citizens as they develop their local plans for reform. Per the Governor's Executive Order, every locality must adopt a plan for reform by April 1, 2021 to be eligible for future state funding.

The Governor also issued a letter to 500 jurisdictions with police departments in New York State.

"We have to address the tensions and lack of trust between our communities and the law enforcement that serves them. I am sending a letter to 500 jurisdictions, explaining that it is imperative that we address this urgent crisis," Governor Cuomo said. "I understand it's complicated. I understand it's difficult. But people are dying. New Yorkers do not run from a crisis - this is a time for leadership and action. Local elected officials must work together with the community and their police forces, to develop and implement reforms for a safer, fairer policing standard."

Today's guidance builds on the Governor's actions following the death of George Floyd. Earlier this year, Governor Cuomo signed into law a series of reform policy items - called the "Say Their Name" agenda - including allowing for transparency of prior disciplinary records of law enforcement officers by reforming 50-a of the civil rights law; banning chokeholds by law enforcement officers; prohibiting false race-based 911 reports and making them a crime; and designating the Attorney General as an independent prosecutor for matters relating to the deaths of unarmed civilians caused by law enforcement.

The full text of the Governor's letter is below:

Dear Chief Executives, Police Chiefs, and Sheriffs:

Many communities all across the country are dealing with issues concerning their police departments. The millions of people who gathered in protest, even in the midst of a public health crisis, made that clear. The situation is unsustainable for all.

Maintaining public safety is imperative; it is one of the essential roles of government. In order to achieve that goal, there must be mutual trust and respect between police and the communities they serve. The success and safety of our society depends on restoring and strengthening mutual trust. With crime growing in many cities, we must seize this moment of crisis and turn it into an opportunity for transformation.

While the conflict is real and the issues are complicated, we know in New York that denial or avoidance is not a successful strategy. To that end, on June 12, 2020, I signed an Executive Order requiring each local government in the State to adopt a policing reform plan by April 1, 2021. The Order authorizes the Director of the Division of the Budget to condition State aid to localities on the adoption of such a plan.

To ensure these plans are developed through an inclusive process, I called for the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative. With more than 500 law enforcement agencies in our large and diverse state, there is no "one size fits all" solution. To rebuild the police-community relationship, each local government must convene stakeholders for a fact-based and honest dialogue about the public safety needs of their community. Each community must envision for itself the appropriate role of the police. Policies must be developed to allow the police to do their jobs to protect the public and these policies must meet with the local communities' acceptance.

"Collaborative" is the key word. It would be a mistake to frame these discussions as an adversarial process or an effort to impose top-down solutions. Issues must be aired but solutions must be crafted. The collaborative process should:

Review the needs of the community served by its police agency, and evaluate the department's current policies and practices;
Establish policies that allow police to effectively and safely perform their duties;
Involve the entire community in the discussion;
Develop policy recommendations resulting from this review;
Offer a plan for public comment;
Present the plan to the local legislative body to ratify or adopt it, and;
Certify adoption of the plan to the State Budget Director on or before April 1, 2021.
I urge everyone to begin these discussions immediately. Restoring the relationship between the community and the police is in everyone's best interest, and conversation may be required to enable each stakeholder to understand others' points of view. Time is short.

Local elected officials are the natural position to convene the process. If the local electeds are unable or unwilling to manage the collaborative, the state can select an appropriate convener for that jurisdiction.

Change is hard. But change is necessary if we are to grow. The tension must be resolved. Order and public safety must be ensured. I am excited by the possibilities and I am hopeful that this time of crisis will evolve into a moment of creativity and progress. It is normal to make adjustments to fit changing values and circumstances.

We are addressing the COVID crisis by acknowledging the problem, having productive dialogue and by working together. Let's do the same here.

This is an opportunity to reinvent law enforcement for the 21st century.

Governor Cuomo announced new guidance for the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative, which was established by the Governor's Executive Order in June.

I would like to thank Senator Tim Kennedy for supporting the Village of Depew's George Urban Blvd. Safety Project and securing the funding to deal with the problems created when over-height tractor trailer rigs ignore the numerous signs indicating the height of the CSX railroad bridge is only 11' 9". Also included in the project is additional solar school-zone flashing speed signs that will be added to the current static signage in front of the Cantalician Center. The majority of the $64K grant will be used to install a Solar-Powered Dual Beam Infrared Overheight Warning System on both sides of the bridge that activates flashing LED signs when the beams are broken by a large vehicle and they engineered to capture the driver's attention and decrease the number of collisions with the bridge. That stretch of George Urban Blvd. is traveled by more than 15K vehicles a day and it is important to keep the public safe.

More than 19 tractor trailers have collided with a bridge on a problematic stretch of George Urban Boulevard since 2018 - including just yesterday.

Today I joined Depew Mayor Kevin Peterson, Cantalician Center for Learning Executive Director Anne Spisiak and Director of Education Jason Petko, and Depew Police Department Lt. Bill Curr to announce a state grant I've secured to implement traffic safety improvements along this roadway.

It is a shame the Depew school parade did not come down Gould Ave near Preston. There was a whole family sitting in front of their house waiting. 3 school age kids, Grandmother, baby and a older brother all sitting in wagons and chairs. We watched the parade go down Transit Rd. and also at the far end of Gould near the police department. But never came down this end. You can say there were pretty disappointed.
Thank you to the Village of Depew for my Arbor Day Black Cherry Tree!
I hope the audio will work better than last meeting. Audio was turned up on my end and it still was difficult to hear.
We have a coyote roaming in the back of our house by the defunct railroad bed behind Claude Drive. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it?
When is large trash pick up? We are supposed to be getting a new couch delivered Monday and will need to throw out our old one.
