Chief John Proctor held a meeting Tuesday to discuss how officers dealt with large crowds over the weekend.
Saturday night there was a large fight outside the Albany Civic Center after some people were turned away from a concert.
Proctor says they could have used more officers, and his department will plan better for future events. "That includes making sure we have appropriate staff there. I don't think that we staffed some of the events as well as we should have. We will do better on that, " Proctor said.
Chief Proctor says his Department will start planning for city events one year in advance.
He says Police are already working on the annual Christmas Parade.
