I have captured some episodes from the March 3, 2021, public forum held by the Saratoga Springs Police Reform Task Force. The purpose of the event was to provide the public an opportunity to share their thoughts on the draft of the Task Force’s recommendations to the City Council.
My selection was meant to share both some of the interesting suggestions made by the public and provide some sense of the Task Force.
It became apparent that some people who addressed the Task Force assumed that the Task Force had some sort of investigative powers. The co-chairs, Camille Daniels and Jason Golub, showed considerable skill and patience in addressing the frustration sometimes directed to the Task Force.
The following videos are not in any kind of order.
