Albany--Federal budget cuts may soon mean less money for Albany Police Department programs that help keep you safe.

Since 1995, APD has received more than five million dollars in Community Oriented Policing grants.

APD used the money for such things as ATVs and bikes and the Weed and Seed program.

Chief James Younger says cutbacks will hurt their ability to expand the department's technology.

"Where I see this impacting us in terms of expanding in the areas of technology, particularly the area of forensics and enhancing our capability to deal with computer related crime and cyber crime," he says.

Younger says he plans to reach out to universities and the private sector for financial assistance.
