ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The staff of the Rochester Police Accountability Board will lay out plans to deal with ongoing issues. We’ve been telling you about all the turmoil surrounding the board for months.

They plan to address these issues at 12:45 p.m. on Thursday at City Hall. Rochester City Council member Stanley Martin and union leaders will join the staff for an update on their plans moving forward.

You may recall, workers have proposed joining a union. Since May, eight staffers have been fired or resigned, and the executive director is suspended. Another senior staffer was fired almost a month ago.

At meetings throughout this month, the PAB is inviting Rochester residents to provide their input on the agency’s draft Disciplinary Matrix. The Disciplinary Matrix outlines potential penalty levels and sanctions for Rochester police officers who commit misconduct.

The PAB is hosting three feedback sessions where the public can ask questions about the report, and share what the Rochester community wants from their police department. Here are the meetings:
