Report outlines Albany police chief’s work on racial profiling

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.
