ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Shani Wilson has resigned as chair of the Rochester Police Accountability Board amid allegations of retaliation and sexual harassment.
PAB Executive Director Conor Dwyer Reynolds, who is currently on administrative leave, published an essay online earlier this week, claiming Wilson sexually harassed him from the start of his service with the board in 2020. After reporting the alleged harassment, Reynolds claims Wilson launched a campaign to discredit him and ruin his reputation.
Reynolds has been on leave since mid-May.
A special meeting will be held on Monday to identify a new board chair.
