Reform and Reinvention Collaborative

Together with several community partners, the NYPD is undertaking a Department-wide initiative that is aimed at transforming policing in New York City. This joint effort among Commissioner Shea, Mayor de Blasio, and external advisors will respond to and extend beyond Governor Cuomo's New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative.

The community partners in this initiative are Arva Rice, President and CEO of the New York Urban League; Jennifer Jones Austin, CEO and Executive Director of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies; and Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood.

In March 2021, the Mayor’s Office posted drafts of this collaborative plan. The drafts can be read here:
