County Administrator Hosting Public Forum on Police Reform, Seeking Community Input, Update on Collaborative with City of Ithaca

Thursday, October 8, 2020

Tompkins County Administrator Jason Molino will host a public forum on police reform on Thursday, October 15 at 5pm. The forum will be streamed on Tompkins County’s YouTube channel and is part of the collaborative effort to reform policing with the City of Ithaca. All municipalities with police departments are required to submit a policing reform plan to New York State by April 1, 2021 in response to State executive order 203 following the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota earlier this year.

Members of the public are invited to review a prepared overview of Tompkins County governmental departments that report to the Public Safety Committee of the County Legislature and provide input on police reform via this survey. Members of the public can also provide input through the YouTube chat function during the forum. Additional engagement opportunities, including ways for individuals to engage without internet access, will be shared with the community in the coming weeks.

The forum kicks off a series of public engagement opportunities that will be shared as Tompkins County and the City of Ithaca work with the Center for Policing Equity to review data and create reform plans. During the forum, Molino will provide a high-level overview of Tompkins County governmental departments, as well as share trends from community responses to the survey and outline next steps in the police reform process.

Additional upcoming forums and community engagement sessions will be available and archived at this link.
