Syracuse Mayor’s Office Statement Regarding Protest at City Hall

Mayor Walsh has reviewed the incident with Chief Fowler and continues discussions with the Chief and Superintendent Alicea regarding school resource officers. Because of active litigation and an ongoing review by the Onondaga County District Attorney’s office, the City is limited in what it can say regarding the matter. The Mayor encourages and welcomes input on school safety and is listening to the concerns being expressed about this incident and about the relationship between students, school staff and school resource officers.
