The City of Rochester unveiled a survey on police reform Monday, but some residents argue that the way that questions are worded is problematic.

  

City councilmember Mary Lupien said around 20 people have reached out to her with concerns over the wording of the survey within the first 24 hours of it’s release.

The new interim chief of the Rochester Police Department was sworn in at City Hall on Wednesday.

Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan becomes the first woman to lead the department; she was named chief by Mayor Lovely Warren last month.

Herriott-Sullivan comes in at a challenging time for that department with racial justice rallies this year for George Floyd and Daniel Prude and ongoing protests as recently as Tuesday night.
