Oneida County is looking for public feedback on its Police Reform & Reinvention Collaborative Plan, which was created by a committee of community leaders and law enforcement.

In June, Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered all localities to work with police agencies to develop reform plans to improve police practices and procedures.

“Over the past few months this committee has worked hard to evaluate the policies and procedures of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and I believe that this collaboration will improve upon what was already a stellar law enforcement agency,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente. “I look forward to receiving input from the public that will provide even more insight that can be utilized in this important process.”

The plan outlines the existing strategies and agencies in the county that work to keep the community safe, like the Child Advocacy Center, the Gun Involved Violence Elimination unit and mobile apps for alerts. Recent legislative changes and new police reform initiatives are also listed in the plan.

Community members can review the plan below, and submit comments to ce@ocgov.net through 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 8.

The committee will submit the plan to the Oneida County Board of Legislators for approval on March 10.
