Albany Police chief meets with community members after alleged excessive force incident


About fifty people attended a community meeting Monday night with Albany Police Chief Eric Hawkins. 

The meeting, which was at the Arbor Hill Community Center, gave people the opportunity to ask questions, and share their thoughts and concerns with the chief. 

Many said the other officers that responded to the scene back in March who didn’t speak up about the alleged assault should be held accountable for their inaction. 

The chief said you can’t indict an entire department based upon the actions of a few officers.
