Also schedules community forum for Sept. 22
Dutchess County’s Police Reform & Modernization Collaborative announced on Sept. 3 that it has launched a website at DutchessNY.gov/PoliceReform and also plans to host six, 2-hour community forums via Zoom.
“Transparency is at the very heart of the work we are doing,” said Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro in a statement.
Residents of Beacon are invited to attend a forum scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22. Registration is required at DutchessNY.gov/PoliceForums. A recording of the forum also will be posted online.
I hope reform is not a code name for defunding or reduction due to political considerations only. I think the Poughkeepsie police are the greatest and so is the mayor. I would gladly demonstrate anytime asked. I appreciate the mayor’s actions making the demonstrations on Main Street, which was peaceful, and the police for not shooting the guy with the gun which turned out to be a toy.
