Civilian Oversight in Policing Committee Members Needed

In accordance with the Village of Athens local law #02 of 2022 passed on 13 April 2022, the Village Board is looking for residents interested in participating on the Civilian Oversight in Policing Committee. 

The committee was formed as part of the Village’s response to Executive Order #203, New York State Police Reform & Reinvention Collaborative, and is intended to monitor and  review the policies and practices governing the Athens Police Department and to make focus-based recommendations to the Village Board to support the maintenance and enhancement of police and community relations.

Any Village residents interested in participating should submit a letter of intent (a sample of which can be found here) and mail  or drop off to the Village clerk no later than July 20, 2022.
