Violence Prevention Task Force

In accordance with the Equity Agenda (Chapter 183 of the Code of the City of Albany), the Albany Common Council’s Public Safety Committee establishes a Violence Prevention Task Force. The Violence Prevention Task Force is responsible for convening stakeholders every fall to develop action items in preparation for the upcoming summer in anticipation of an uptick in violence. This Task Force is composed of members of the Albany Common Council’s Public Safety Committee, community members from wards disproportionately impacted by violence, at least one youth representative, representatives from the Albany Police Department, the Mayor’s office, the Albany City School District, clergy, and members from violence prevention-related organizations.
