Albany, NY - The City of Albany is seeking community input to help select a permanent Police Chief to lead the Albany Police Department. The City of Albany, along with a national search firm, Public Sector Search & Consulting, Inc., will host a series of community forums to provide Albany residents with an opportunity to share their thoughts on the personal characteristics and professional experience that are most important for the individual leading the Albany Police Department.

“The Albany Police Department is a national leader in advancing critical public safety initiatives that build trust within our diverse community,” said Mayor Kathy Sheehan. “As we seek to select a new Police Chief, we are committed to listening to all our residents. Input from Albany neighborhoods is critical to helping recruit and select the right Chief. My hope is that residents will come to a forum to ensure their voices are heard.” 

The community forums have been scheduled as follows:
  • Sunday, April 15 – 3:00pm-5:00pm at the Capital South Campus Center Community Rooms (20 Warren Street)
