The Village of Avon is complying with New York State Executive Law No. 203, New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaboration, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo on June 12, 2020. Executive Law No. 203 states that immediate action is needed to eliminate racial inequities in policing, to modify and modernize policing strategies, policies, procedures, and practices, and to develop practices to better address the particular needs of communities of color, to promote public safety, to improve community engagement, and foster greater trust.
The Village of Avon established a stakeholders group using guidelines from the executive order. Stakeholders held meetings and created a community survey which was posted for unrestricted public comment for over fourteen days. Based on those meetings and the informative data from the public survey, a police reform plan is being formally offered by the Village Board for public comment.
The police reform plan, as well as resource materials (public survey data) is available on the Village’s website and upon request.
Any Comments or questions regarding the police reform plan will be heard at the meeting on March 1,2021 at 74 Genesee Street Avon, NY or via telephone/video conference (please see below).
