A community effort...
Community partnerships are integral to our success in maintaining the public safety in Albany. In order to accomplish our mission of "Excellence Through Service," we encourage community involvement and input. Citizens share a responsibility to actively report all public safety concerns and work closely with us to help resolve problems and develop long-term solutions. We encourage citizens to become involved through programs like our Citizens' Police Academy, Neighborhood Watch, Safe and Secure Seniors Independent (SASSI), Graffiti Abatement, Ride-a-Long Patrol Observation, or Neighborhood Speed Watch. You may contact our Community Resource Unit at 541-917-3206 for further information on any of our community education programs. By working together, we will continue to create and maintain the quality of life we expect for all who live in and visit Albany.
