As you may have seen on the Town of Ogden Police Department Facebook and Twitter pages, the Town of Ogden is working with a committee of local stakeholders and citizens to examine how police services are provided to this community. This committee was formed in response to Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 203 “NEW YORK STATE POLICE REFORM AND REINVENTION COLLABORATIVE”. For more information on this Executive order, please visit https://www.governor.ny.gov/.../no-203-new-york-state....
The committee identified five main areas of focus to examine. These areas are:
Racial Bias Training
- -Respecting difference in race, culture, religion, gender, etc.
- -Understanding how one’s own race/culture/etc. influences how one sees/treats others
- -Role of police culture
- -Understanding/respecting community demographics
- -Valuing differences
Better Police/Public Relationship
- -Procedural justice—fairness and transparency in decision-making, etc.
- -Treating public with fairness, respect, integrity, compassion, equity
- -Greater transparency
- -Police conduct
Use of Force
- -Best practices for de-escalation
- -Use of non-lethal ‘tools’
Mental Health Issues
- -Training officers how to identify and respond to prominent mental health problems
- -Access to county and other mental health resources
- -Address police stress
The committee also seeks to answer the question: How do these fit into the overall OPD mission to protect life, property and maintain the safety of the community?
We are soliciting the input of the citizens of Ogden and Spencerport, as well as our students and business owners. We are holding a public forum via Zoom this Thursday, November 19th, 2020, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. If you would like to participate, please use the following link:

- Secure personal computers with a firewall and anti-virus software.
- Keep personal information & passwords private. Do not respond to requests to "verify" your credit card information. It could be a trick.
- Beware of "Bargains" from unfamiliar companies or shop with companies you know.
- Use secure websites for purchases. Look for the padlock icon at the bottom of your screen, or the "HTTPS" within the URL address.
- Do not respond to online solicitations for charities. If you are interested in giving to a charity, first do a through checkup with their online process.
- Consider alternate options to pay for the merchandise, such as disposable credit cards or money orders. Perhaps there is a local storefront nearby you can visit instead.
