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 between Commissioner Shea, Mayor de Blasio, the New York City Council 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 Federal of Protestant Welfare Agencies; and Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood.

There are many ways to get involved in this process, including eight listening sessions held in each of NYPD's Patrol Boroughs and broadcast on Facebook Live. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, members of the public may register for these meetings and participate remotely using the Zoom links below. All listening sessions will be held from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
