Connections: The Center for Dispute Settlement on police accountability

Jul 24, 2017

We sit down with Frank Liberti and Cheryl Hayward from the Center for Dispute Settlement, focusing on police accountability in Rochester. The CDS currently evaluates cases that stem from civilian complaints. A recent report from local activists alleges that the system is broken, and that civilian complaints are almost never sustained. CDS disagrees; however, CDS has made its own recommendations for how to improve the system. Our guests explain:

  • Frank Liberti, president and CEO of the Center for Dispute Settlement
  • Cheryl Hayward, director of the Police and Community Relations Program at the Center for Dispute Settlement
