The Village of Youngstown Police Department has issued its police reform collaborative public draft review to the community and is encouraging all residents to read and comment on the document by March 5.
Release of the draft follows two community engagement meetings the Youngstown Police held with residents in the village earlier this month. The draft is in compliance with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive order 203, issued June 12, 2020.
A hard copy of the draft is available for review at the Youngstown Police Department, located in the Red Brick Village Center, 240 Lockport St.
Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, an appointment will need to be made with the Youngstown Police Department in order to review the hard copy. The hard copy is not available to take home.
Residents are requested contact the Youngstown Police by telephone, leave a message and an officer will return the call to set up an appointment. YPD can be reached at 716-745-3623.
YPD said a 56-page PDF version of the document is also available online for review at the Village of Youngstown website, www.youngstownnewyork.us. Link to the YPD.
Again, comments are encouraged. A hard copy comment page is available at the YPD office in the Red Brick or at the Youngstown U.S. Post Office station at Lockport and South Second streets.
Comments can be returned to the Village of Youngstown drop-box located at the Red Brick Village Center, or emailed to the YPD at [email protected].
