COOPERSTOWN – The Village Board tonight is scheduled to be the first of three entities in Otsego County to approve a police-reform plan ordered by the Cuomo Administration on June 12, 2020, after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis sparked nationwide protests.
The trustees are scheduled to vote on a “Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative Plan” certification when they meet at 6:30 this evening via Zoom. Click here to observe the meeting.
The three entities in the county with their own police departments – the City of Oneonta and Otsego County government, which oversees the Sheriff’s Department, as well as the village – are required to submit such reports by April 1.
