Community Police Partnership Board Meeting Raw Notes October 13, 2021

Written By: Robert Cox

What follows are raw, unedited notes from the first CPPB Meeting. Given my low opinion of the entire endeavor I cannot be bothered with writing an article. I did offer suggestions to the co-chairs on how to improve how they operate meetings — mostly to follow New York State Open Meeting Law whether required to or not.
