The mayor and his supporters hailed the deal for providing new revenue for the cash-strapped city and praised the hospital for being a good community partner. But critics argued that Paterson was short-changed in the settlement by accepting a fraction of the money it could have gotten from the hospital.

St. Joseph’s owns about 35 properties in Paterson assessed at a total of $187 million, according to public records. If the hospital paid full taxes like other property owners, its annual bill would be $7.8 million, the records show.

The study comes as a response to an American Journal story about the frequency force is used on Black people compared to the rest of the population. Between 2016 and 2019, 14%-17% of officers’ use of force involved Black people, who make up just 2.3% of Westbrook’s population, according to the 2010 census demographics, the most recent available.

“While we do not know what the outcomes will be, in modeling our core values of professionalism, accountability, compassion, integrity, fairness and courage, if the results indicate unfair treatment of People of Color, or any group, we expect to own it, identify ways to change, and implement the changes,” Police Chief Janine Roberts said. “These steps are integral to maintaining the trust we have built among
