Troy Mayor Madden's Goal - Improve the Police Department

Troy Mayor Patrick Madden gives his annual State of the City address.

He says he's working hard to try to reshape the police department.

“Policing isn’t just about capturing and handcuffing people, it’s about working with individuals in the community.”

Troy police have been under scrutiny for a number of issues especially the highly publicized shooting death of Edson Thevenin.

Chief John Tedesco retired last month and the acting chief is set to retire in the coming months.

Madden says that he will name a new chief before the end of this month. 

He adds his command staff has been meeting with the DOJ's community relations office to give Troy a better quality of life.
