City residents have two opportunities this week to hear from groups working to reshape policing.
At 6:30 p.m. Jan. 12, the Police Accountability Board will hold a Zoom webinar to collect feedback on a draft report about police reform.
Board members will review the initial findings, which are based on board research and comments from about 30 individuals. Then participants will be able to ask questions and learn how they can provide feedback.
Registration is not required. The link is https://cityofrochester.zoom.us/j/92019840080.
Questions about the webinar can be sent to PAB Executive Director Conor Dwyer Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At 6 p.m. Jan. 14, the Rochester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., has scheduled a Facebook Live on police accountability.
The goals of the Rochester Police Accountability Board and lawsuits that have sprung up relating to the board’s establishment will be among the topics addressed during the program, which is part of the chapter’s Delta Talks series on community issues.

- Anthony Cowart of the Police Accountability Board Alliance.
