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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
