Broadalbin seeks input on police reform plan

BROADALBIN — The village of Broadalbin Police Department is seeking public input as part of its Police Reform plan.

In August, Gov. Andrew Couomo issued new guidance for the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative following the death of George Floyd.

According to a press release, the village of Broadalbin has been collaborating with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department in the performance of a comprehensive review of its department and to develop a plan to improve its police force deployments, strategies, policies, procedures and practices in accordance with the “New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative.”

The village employs officers who are employees and maintain all their training through the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department.

“As such it was agreed that we would create our plan in unison with the County in the continuance of our interagency agreement. One of the most important aspects of the review is to reach out for public input,” the release states.

Members of the public are invited to participate in this through a public hearing being held Monday at the Fulton County Board of Supervisors Meeting, by visiting the Fulton County Board of Supervor’s Website at www.fultoncountyny.gov/board-supervisors, by sending written comments/concerns to: broadalbinvillage@frontiernet.net or dropping off at the village office.

Village residents with any questions, feel free to contact the village office at 518-883-8265.
