Guardian Angels' Push To Form Albany Chapter Continues
The Guardian Angels say they'll return to Albany tonight to continue recruitment efforts.
Founder Curtis Sliwa says the group will meet 7:30 at the downtown Greyhound station, where they will train local recruits in making citizen arrests.
"That's exactly what we're gonna be doing as we put together a new chapter of Albany Guardian Angels. And then we simulate street situations. 'What are you going to do if there's a fight or a dispute or a domestic situation?'”
Sliwa says following the drills he and the recruits will head out to patrol the South End. He notes the red berets need at least a dozen recruits to sustain an Albany chapter. City Hall today denied Sliwa's request to meet with Mayor Kathy Sheehan.
