Connections: Members of the Rochester Police Accountability Board discuss recent policing incidents

Mar 9, 2021

We sit down with members of the Rochester Police Accountability Board to discuss a number of recent events that have placed Rochester back in the national spotlight: the grand jury decision in the Daniel Prude case; RPD officers pepper spraying a nine-year-old girl; and, most recently, officers pepper spraying a mother while her three-year-old child was nearby.

Our guests discuss their ideas for reform, and the possible impact of the PAB having disciplinary powers. Our guests:

  • Conor Dwyer Reynolds, executive director of the Rochester Police Accountability Board 
  • Shani Wilson, chair of the Rochester Police Accountability Board 
  • Celia McIntosh, vice chair of the Rochester Police Accountability Board 
  • Arlene Brown, member of the Rochester Police Accountability Board
