Daniel Cadet Sr. receives resounding support

Today, the Police Accountability Board will introduce its newest member. Daniel Cadet
Sr. was voted into the position on August 16, by Rochester’s City Council following a
nomination from the Police Accountability Board Alliance. Cadet will formally be
welcomed at tonight’s Board meeting.

Cadet is a social worker at Rochester General Hospital with more than seven years’
experience working with non-profits. He will begin serving on the Board immediately and
expressed his excitement at the opportunity to continue to help this community.
“I’m looking forward to this agency serving the people the way they need to be served,”
Said Cadet, who worked to get the PAB on the ballot in 2019. “I believed it could work
here in Rochester…So I’m excited that it’s here and I helped manifest that.”
A recent graduate of Nazareth College, Cadet originally came to Rochester from
Brooklyn. Here he began work in the AmeriCorps and also worked for the Center of
Dispute Settlement.

This latest addition brings the PAB to a total of eight Board members, with the hope one
more will be nominated and appointed in the coming months to fulfill the legal
requirements laid out by the City’s charter.
You can watch the next PAB Board meeting Thursday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m. on the
PAB’s Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter pages.
