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.

The webinar will be livestreamed on the PAB’s Facebook page. A recording will be placed on the PAB’s YouTube page.

Questions about the webinar can be sent to PAB Executive Director Conor Dwyer Reynolds at conor.reynolds@cityofrochester.gov.

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.

Members of the discussion panel are scheduled to be:

  • Shani Wilson of the PAB.
  • Anthony Cowart of the Police Accountability Board Alliance.
  • Frank Liberti of the Citizens Review Board, predecessor organization to the PAB
  • A. J. Durwin, an attorney for PABA.

Charmaine Cohen, doctor of education and co-chair of the Rochester Alumnae Chapter’s Social Action Committee, will be the panel moderator.
