The Rochester City Council is set this evening to host the first of three public meetings on plans to create a Police Accountability Board.
There are two different versions of a Police Accountability plan for Rochester: The mayor's plan leaves it to the police chief to discipline officers who violate the department's rules of conduct. The Council plan would amend the City Charter to allow the new board to discipline officers.
Tonight's meeting is at 5:30 at the Frederick Douglass R Center on South Avenue. Another is next Monday at the Danforth R Center on West Avenue. The third is January 31st in the City Hall Atrium.
