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

The Albany Police Department and the Community Policing Consortium are hosting a 2-day seminar to help build trust between officers and they people they serve. Police, city leaders, and citizens met at the Law Enforcement Center to talk about crime and community safety.

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.
