Albany -- Community policing experts from Washington, DC are in Albany to help local police build better relationships with you.

The police hope this event will help make Albany safer."The main thing is about problem solving, it's about developing partnerships with police officers, and it's about being proactive," said James Younger.

The community engagement seminar continues Saturday until 3:30. If you want to attend, just show up at the Community Room at the Law Enforcement Center.
