Soares Urges Community Cooperation Amid Albany Crime Spike

Jul 22, 2018

As the city of Albany responds to its bloodiest summer in years, local law enforcement leaders are renewing calls for the community to cooperate in ongoing investigations. Earlier this summer, Mayor Kathy Sheehan and outgoing Police Chief Robert Sears urged residents to dial a local hotline with information as part of the CrimeStoppers program. Now, Albany County District Attorney David Soares is echoing those calls. The Democrat spoke Friday with WAMC’s Ian Pickus about one recent case, the return of the Guardian Angels, and more.
