Niagara County Legislature Chairwoman Becky Wydysh and Acting Sheriff Michael Filicetti on Monday announced the next meeting of the county task force charged with complying with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s mandate that local governments undertake a police reform and reinvention collaborative initiative. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14, at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 1334 Calumet Ave., Niagara Falls. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend to express their opinions.
“The first two meetings have been well-attended and created very good dialogue between the task force and the public in exchanging ideas and answering questions,” Wydysh said. “I remind those who attend that this meeting is focused on the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office. The City of Niagara Falls, like other localities with police departments, will be running a separate process focused on their police department.”
