The Dutchess County Police Reform and Modernization Collaborative was formed with the goals of improving and reforming policing, building on efforts already underway throughout the county, and meeting the requirements of Executive Order No. 203 issued by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The collaborative consisted of members of the community, leaders of non-profits, law enforcement, elected leaders, government officials, and mental health practitioners.
The report is the culmination of their discussions, ideas, and ultimately the hard work of coming together to identify solutions to make Dutchess County a fairer and safer community for all.
On February 5th 2021, the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office published their Police Reform & Modernization plan. CLICK HERE to review the DCSO's plan.
