Albany -- The Albany Police Department want to take a more proactive approach to domestic violence. And they're going to Albany State University for help.

Crime in Albany is up with the majority of the increase coming from aggravated assaults.

Officers say most of the aggravated assault calls that they respond to are domestic related.

The department has enlisted the assistance of an Albany State University professor to see if there is anything officers can do to improve domestic violence in their jurisdictions.
