This draft report of the Rosendale Community Police Reform Committee is subject to final review by the Town Board in consultation with legal counsel.
Pursuant to Gov. Cuomo’s Executive Order 203, The New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative, the Rosendale Town Board established the Rosendale Community Police Reform Committee at their regular August 2020 meeting. This committee of community stakeholders includes Rosendale residents of a variety of backgrounds, representatives from the town board, the police department, and the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office.
The committee has been meeting weekly to begin organizing and gathering necessary information and will develop a plan that reflects the needs of the community, and is working to identify improvement opportunities. The committee will hold public sessions over the next three months to hear the public’s concerns regarding trust, fairness and legitimacy as it relates to policing.
