Syracuse Common Council Passes "Right To Know Act"

Syracuse, N.Y. - The Syracuse Common Council has passed the Right To Know Act.

It was passed with a 7-1 vote.

It requires police officers to identify themselves to individuals they encounter, provide a reason for why they are stopping someone, and provide that person with a way to file a complaint.

Councilman Joe Carni was the only no vote.

The Right to Know Act was part of the nine demands, the Syracuse Police Accountability and Reform Coalition, presented to the city of Syracuse.
