The City of Rochester is preparing to make serious changes to the way police officers serve and protect our community. On Friday, we've learned Mayor Lovely Warren has asked for money from the state to fund a new police quadrant system.

Right now, officers in the city are split between covering the east and west sides, but the new system would instead split them into four groups -- to better respond to emergencies in certain areas.

Mayor Lovely Warren says, "It's going to be a plan that we will talk to the community about, that we will talk to city council about and get people's input before we actually move that way."

Warren says she's not sure yet how much the quadrant system will cost. We're waiting to get an update on how the city will be divided up, Chief Michael Ciminelli will be submitting a plan to the mayor next month.
