Mandated Police Reform In New York

Following the death of George Floyd and protests in the summer of 2020, Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered all police departments in New York to undergo a process of “reform and reinvention.” The state-mandate, known as executive order 203, requires police to consider a host of reforms and incorporate community input. Suffolk and Nassau police have taken very different paths toward this requirement. WSHU’s Charles Lane has been following them.
