"Our interpretation of the budget cut made by the City Council is that it was made in the spirit of reinvestment in our community."
Elizabeth Barajas-Roman
01:45:58
participatory budgeting?
Alisa Klein
01:46:22
^ yes!
Alisa Klein
01:48:57
Ultimately it is Mass General Law that determines how municipalities do their budget process. That doesn’t preclude the possibility of the city doing participatory budget processes.
Alex Jarrett
01:52:11
Agree with Elizabeth.
Nick Fleisher

"From her, we learned more about NPD’s role in addressing numerous serious alleged crimes in Northampton" ?
Booker Bush (He/Him)
03:14:08
I’m sorry that I need to leave this meeting soon, like by 9Pm I have given Dan suggested language for the budget section advice to the city council. I am not wed to the language, but the spirit is about an approach to the budget.
Dan Cannity
03:15:56
I couldn’t copy it, but I took a screenshot of the text to make sure I’ve got it
David Hoose
03:23:08
Didn't everyone already agree to remove "avert"

"From her, we learned more about NPD’s role in responding to numerous serious alleged/reported crimes in Northampton" ?
Alex Jarrett
03:24:54
When convenient, I would like to request a five minute recess.
Gwenevra Lodi Nabad
03:27:28
Sexual assaults looks actually small.
Elizabeth Barajas-Roman

if the numbers are confusing - then we should make sure they are correct in the appendix; verified

Alex Jarrett
03:30:10
Perhaps we should add this to the appendix, which contains that data: https://www.northamptonpd.com/npd-open-data-portal/crimes-and-call-activity/246-major-crimes-by-year-2006-ytd-summary-data.html
Dan Cannity
03:38:10
I like having the data in the appendix as well to give context to the numbers

Dan Cannity
03:43:07
The Subcommittee, therefore, requested information from the NPD about practices including, mental health, complaint procedure and logs, schools, strategic planning, and other services. Chief Jody Kasper agreed to meet directly with our subcommittee. From her, we learned more about NPD’s role in responding to numerous reported serious crimes in Northampton (e.g., in 2019, NPD addressed sexual assaults, cases of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, other assaults, robberies, breaking and entering cases, and larcenies) as well as the NPD’s relationships to social services, range and volume of calls, training activities, domestic violence, traffic stops, allocation of officers per shift and the role of Dispatch.

Thank you Dan, I'm ok with that
David Hoose

Gwenevra Lodi Nabad
03:48:07
Right I was going to say that needs an edit.

03:51:23
agreed.
Gwenevra Lodi Nabad

which included fear
Gwenevra Lodi Nabad
03:54:02
distrust
Gwenevra Lodi Nabad
03:54:46
overuse of force in mental health situations? Or assumption of things for example, in one case where someone had a broken foot and instead ended up sectioned?
Gwenevra Lodi Nabad
03:55:53
have a great night thank you for all that you do.
Elizabeth Barajas-Roman
04:00:59
Dan you're a champ!
Javier Luengo-Garrido (he/him)

"Leadership" means people with lived experience of criminalization are in governance and leadership positions within the new department, and are prioritized in hiring decisions. Those who have been directly impacted by policing must not only be consulted but must be able to co-design the service.

Would it be possible to see the revised language?
Alex Jarrett
04:09:21
I believe the "It should be led" sentence was proposed to be removed.
Javier Luengo-Garrido (he/him)
04:09:46
This includes, but is not limited to, Black and Indigenous people, people of color, immigrants, poor and working class people, unhoused people, disabled people, people harmed by sexual, domestic and psychiatric violence, youth, and LGBTQ people.

Policing and public safety are complex topics. The City Council should bring together a diverse representation of stakeholders to have a conversation about the vision for public safety, including members of the public - especially those who may have had negative experiences with police or who have been historically marginalized.
Dan Cannity
04:38:56
Stakeholders from these demographic and geographic communities will have different views and lived experiences than the budget staff when it comes to the police. They will likely have different preferences for how policing and public safety services are delivers. These views must be part of the conversation if we’re to reach resource allocations that are fair and meet the community’s needs.
