Police Involved Shooting at 77 Rustic Street Update
The Investigator that was involved in the Police Involved Shooting incident yesterday on Rustic Street is: Investigator Scott Ferro.
Investigator Ferro is a 19-year veteran of the Rochester Police Department.
In accordance with our standard policy, this investigator will be assigned administrative duties pending the investigation of this event.
In response to the Body Worn Camera video request, the involved Investigator is assigned to the Special Investigations Section (SIS), and SIS personnel have not been assigned a BWC. There were three uniform support officers that responded and we do have some BWC video from them, but nothing showing the actual shooting, as the officers with BWCs were outside at the time the shooting happened inside the house.
You are invited to take part in this informative discussion to come together and learn about what it is that is happening and what we can do together to be proactive members of our communities. Registration is appreciated.
Dates: 7/31 & 8/17
As an element of the Blueprint for Engagement, The City of Rochester is looking for young men and women to serve as Rochester Police Officers. In an effort to enhance our recruitment strategies, the Rochester Police Department is looking for interested community members willing to serve as Community Recruiters. We are seeking individuals from all aspects of the Rochester community, to include residents, clergy, business, education and government that are willing to identify qualified candidates interested in a career in law enforcement and begin the initial recruitment process. This will serve as a force multiplier for recruitment efforts and help attract more qualified candidates to pursue a career with the RPD, with a special focus on city residents. Those selected will be provided with training and recruitment material from the department’s Professional Development Section. Interested community members should provide their information at www.cityofrochester.gov/communityrecruiters. For all other inquiries, please contact RPDEmpowersRochester@cityofrochester.gov.
