Over the past few years we have made tremendous changes and progress with in the department that we believe will benefit the entire community.  Our main priority is provide the safest environment for our residents to live in, our commuters to work in, and our visitors to stay in.

To achieve this we have incorporated some of the newest technology available in law enforcement combined with traditional community policing aimed towards building better relationships with the entire community we serve.

We believe we have one of the finest police departments in the country and are delighted to welcome you to the Albany Police Department web site.  In these pages you can learn more about the many things the Albany Police Department does.
