On Saturday morning  the chief and some of his staff met with leaders of neighborhood watch groups at the Law Enforcement Center.

Officers were available to answer and inform residents about how they're working to tackle crime in Albany.

Police told the group they're working hard to gain more of the public's trust and respect.

"There may have been some deterioration of respect for this place, but I can assure you from the day I stepped foot in this department it has been my intent to rebuild the organization so they will be proud of this place, and be proud to be affiliated with APD," said Chief John Proctor, Albany Police.

Chief Proctor said APD has hired 23 people since January who are in various stages of training.
