As a growing list of police departments are being rebuked for unconstitutional practices, some leaders in Albany and at City Hall in New York City have embraced the mantle of progressive criminal justice reform. But they have stopped short of enshrining broad change in law.

Fire commissioners in Poughkeepsie ordered a fire department to remove U.S. flags that were mounted on its firetrucks because they said the display was a "liability" to the firefighters and other motorists.
A 56-year-old Massachusetts man was indicted in federal court Wednesday after allegedly traveling to Colonie to engage in sexual activities with someone he thought was a 14-year-old boy, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
