Albany Common Council Meeting Looks for Answers to Violence

Albany Violence

Albany city officials are looking for community input on ways to stop the violence.

Speaking at a Common Council caucus Wednesday, acting police chief Robert Sears said he wants to see the outrage, because it shows a level of commitment and means people care.

He and Mayor Kathy Sheehan joined the discussion, possible solutions ranging from increasing services for young people to partnerships with other law enforcement agencies to help Albany Police. 

Sears says police have increased foot patrols, but a spokesperson for the Arbor Hill Neighborhood Association tells the Times Union the community needs to be involved in any solution, another get-together at Arbor Hill Park set for Sunday.
