The NYPD will set up eight public meetings around the city, including one Wednesday in Staten Island. The law-enforcement agency will use feedback from the forums to help reinvent the department by April, the officials said. i30世界播


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo mandated the adoption of reforms by the NYPD with an executive order issued in June after he and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio publicly sparred over Mr. de Blasio’s handling of protests against racism and police brutality. The demonstrations were spurred by the killing of George Floyd, a Black man, in Minneapolis police custody. i30世界播

At the time, Mr. Cuomo said that Mr. de Blasio and the city’s police department “did not do their job” to stop looting and violence that sometimes accompanied the mostly peaceful protests that drew thousands of New Yorkers. i30世界播

Mr. de Blasio has made changes to policing and criminal justice in his seven years as mayor, including reducing the number of arrests made by the NYPD and shrinking the city’s jail population. i30世界播


Crime remained low during much of Mr. de Blasio’s two terms in office but homicides and shootings have risen in 2020. The NYPD struggled to make gun arrests during the summer but in September detectives began to make more arrests, according to NYPD figures. i30世界播


In a statement issued Tuesday, Mr. de Blasio said his police-reform efforts have permanently strengthened the bond between the NYPD and local communities. i30世界播
