Jan 14, 2022 | 0 comments

“At the close of city business today, we learned that there was no mass firing of Providence Police officers. We’re pleased the city administration has taken a reasonable approach to what could have been a disastrous situation if more than 70 officers were taken off the job and removed from policing our streets. At 5:30 tonight, the City Council will hold an emergency meeting to take up a proposed ordinance that will lay out new procedures and accountability for any mass terminations in the capital city,” said President Igliozzi.

Tonight’s 5:30 p.m. meeting will be held virtually, with remote access for the public and media.
