AFC Testifies on Reducing the Responsibilities of the NYPD

09.27.2021 | Today, AFC is testifying before the City Council Committee on Public Safety, joining the call from students, parents, and educators for police-free schools and urging the City to eliminate the reliance on the New York City Police Department to address the needs of students in our schools. The City must invest sufficient resources to create a comprehensive, multi-tiered system of mental health and social-emotional supports and services that ensures every school can effectively meet students’ needs with a trauma-informed approach, including by investing in staff trained and coached in providing direct services to students.
