Based on information we've gathered, we have found that the Irondequoit Police Department:
- Did not have a robust policy related to bias-based policing or racial profiling.
- Provided little useful guidance on recognizing and responding to specific mental health concerns outside the context of making “mental hygiene arrests.”
- Could better integrate de-escalation into the department’s use of force policies.
- Gave officers detailed information on the procedures for carrying out traffic stops, but included no real discussion of the legal standards they must follow.
