JAMESTOWN – Leaders in Jamestown are asking for the public’s input by taking an online survey part of the city’s police reform initiative.

Officials with the Jamestown City Council Public Safety Committee say the survey is intended to solicit feedback from the community about the Jamestown Police Department.

Cities in New York State are required under a directive by Governor Andrew Cuomo to develop a plan that reinvents and modernizes police strategies and programs in their community based on community input.









Each police agency’s reform plan must address policies, procedures, practices and deployment, including, but not limited to use of force. Police forces must adopt a plan by April 1, 2021 to be eligible for future state funding.

The survey will be open from now until Nov. 1.















For questions on the survey can be directed to the Mayor’s Office by calling (716) 483-7600 or emailing mayor@jamestownny.gov.

  1. Ok, first off, you have parents’ that would rather be friends with their children rather than be a good parents’ and be parents’! It’s not the police’s fault that parents have raised their children up to be unlawful pieces of crap! And secondly, you’ve got child protection laws that says you can’t spank your children when they need to be spanked! And, now theirs a law that says you have to believe a child, even if, their story has been fabricated to get back at the parents’ for disciplining them! And then, you have the welfare system removing the father’s from the homes and destroying the nuclear family! I’ve always told my children when they were growing up” if you do something to break the law and get arrested you’re safer in jail”!
    You have more parents’ that don’t take their families to church than who do! Our government has allowed schools to teach our children that if you’re putting a whopping on you they’ll get in trouble! Maybe all the law makers need to literally take a walk in the police officers shoes and see for themselves what it’s like to be a police officer! Compliance with the police is key! I support our law enforcement! BLM BLUE LIVES MATTER!
