Statement by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh on City Auditor Report on SPD COVID-19 Procedures

“With all we’ve learned about COVID-19 in the past year, it is now clear this practice should have been handled differently. It was a time of great unknown, and no one had a play book to respond. Chief Buckner advised me of his decision at the time, and I still respect his efforts to protect our officers and their families. With the new timekeeping systems and written procedures being put in place, we will be able to better respond to such situations in the future. I appreciate the Auditor’s review and recommendations.”
