ALBANY, NY - Today the City of Albany, the Albany Police Detectives Unit, Local 952, the Albany Police Officers Union, Local 2841, and Council 82 are pleased to announce the resolution of the contract dispute regarding health insurance coverage for Linda Mayville, the widow of Detective Douglas Mayville. Detective Mayville died in 2014 and was honored at that time as a fallen hero. The last item of that recognition has now been achieved with the settlement of the claim by Detective Mayville’s widow, Linda Mayville, for health insurance coverage.


The parties came together and fostered a resolution that will serve as an opportunity for continued improved relations between the City and its police force. This outcome could not have been achieved without the good-faith effort of all the representatives and the outstanding efforts and guidance of Hon. Denise Hartman of the Supreme Court, Albany County. Her continued oversight ensured the resolution of this matter.
