WESTFIELD COMMUNITY AND POLICE COLLABORATION COMMITTEE

Let's Improve Our Community

The Committee has been meeting since early Fall and is very interested in having more feedback from the Westfield residents. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts in this brief survey. We are interested in understanding how the local community feels about the Westfield Police Department. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.
The New York State Executive Order #203 requires each Police Department to perform a review of services it provides.

SURVEY RESULTS

The Westfield Community and Police Collaboration Committee was formed to help our police department better serve our community

 

ABOUT

The charge of this committee will be to look at the Village of Westfield Police Department to address the particular needs of our community and promote community engagement to foster trust, fairness, and legitimacy, and address any racial bias and disproportionate policing of neighborhoods; this committee should consider evidence-based policing strategies.

State guidelines call for this collaborative process to:

  • Review the needs of the community served by its police agency

  • Evaluate the department's current policies and practices

  • Establish policies that allow police to effectively and safely perform their duties

  • Involve the entire community in the discussion

  • Develop policy recommendations resulting from this review

  • Offer a plan for public comment

  • Present the plan to the local legislative body to ratify or adopt it
