Public Safety Advisory Committee

This committee was formed by the Town Board to address Governor Cuomo's executive order 203: New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative. The executive order can be viewed at

This committee consists of two Town Board members and 12 community members from across the Town of Manlius. We will work together to gather community input identifying the services needed by our community, review of police procedures and practices and present a plan of recommendations to the Town Board for public comment before April 2021. 

Community Engagement

Onondaga County Police Reform & Reinvention Collaborative has created a website for public comments and community forums. Visit to learn more. The community forum scheduled for the eastern suburbs, including the Town of Manlius, is scheduled for January 20, 2021 at 5pm

The Public Safety Advisory Committee wants to know what questions and ideas you have for our Police Department. The committee will not be directly answering these questions and comments, but will be reviewing these questions using them to guide their review and for future presentations. 

Submit questions & comments to the Public Safety Advisory Committee.

Community Questions 

We collected your questions from our form above and talking with our neighbors. Some of these questions were answered by our police department in the presentation below. For additional questions we received, the Public Safety Advisory Committee has created the following document to answer your questions.
