Report outlines Albany police chief's work on racial profiling

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. - A report was released Thursday by the Center for Law and Justice on Albany Police Chief Steven Krokoff's performance over his three years in office.

Local activist Alice Green held a press conference Thursday outlining the 31 page report. Green says a lot of work still needs to be done when it comes to racial profiling in the Capital Region's criminal justice system. She says it starts with law enforcement, and their efforts to fairly police the community.

Green believes, although progress has been made, Albany Police Chief Steven Krokoff has done little to bridge the racial gap in Albany County. She says racial divide can be seen in many ways, including the disproportionately large police presence at African American events.

In the report, Green outlines recommendations the Albany Police Department can take to make members of the African American community feel less singled out by law enforcement.
