Mayor and police chief propose switching to four police patrol divisions

Created: 01/17/2014 10:34 PM WHEC.com

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren and Interim Police Chief Michael Ciminelli say there's a proposal in the works to expand the number of patrol divisions in the Rochester Police Department.

Right now, there are two, East and West.

The proposal calls for expanding that number to at least four.

Officials say they hope to promote community policing in the city better, create a closer relationship between the department and community and have a more effective policing model.

We’re told a proposed schedule for the reorganization will be presented to the mayor next week and will include ways to solicit community feedback.
