Niagara County Announces Next Community Engagement Meetings

Niagara County Legislature Chairman Becky Wydysh and Acting Sheriff Michael Filicetti today announced the next meeting of the county task force charged with complying with Governor Cuomo’s mandate that local governments undertake a police reform and reinvention collaborative initiative.

The meeting will be held in Niagara Falls and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend to express their opinions.

WHAT: Meeting of Niagara County task force on police reform and reinvention.

WHEN: 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 14.

WHERE: Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 1334 Calumet Avenue, Niagara Falls.

“The first two meetings have been well attended and created very good dialogue between the task force and the public in exchanging ideas and answering questions,” said Wydysh. “I remind those who attend that this meeting is focused on the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office. The City of Niagara Falls, like other localities with police departments, will be running a separate process focused on their police department.”
