ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Local leaders will review an effort to repeal a controversial law in our area.

The so-called "Anti-Annoyance" law makes it a crime to annoy or harass police officers or first responders.


Monroe County Executive Adam Bello, along with county lawmakers, plan to make an announcement this afternoon.

The county passed the measure back in October when republican Cheryl Dinolfo was county executive.

Community activists say it's too vague and question who will determine what is "annoying" behavior.

Additionally, local police haven't been enforcing it.

Bello is expected to release more details Thursday at 3 p.m.
