@ cfield---(SSB - accreditation, fleet management)
An Assistant Chief needs to be in charge of fleet management.... oh my.... You could put a chimp on minimum wage in charge of fleet management and still be in no worse of a position. And accredidation--- you can't be serious. Do you honestly believe he has anything to do with accredidation? Please... So that's how you justify a $120,000 salary plus another $50,000+ in benefits? Pathetic.
The second A/C---HR--- You don't believe there's a better way to handle HR issues then put a $200,000 assistant chief in charge of it? You wouldn't make it very long in the business world, that's for sure.

cfield- Please list the job duties for each of the 4 assistant chiefs. Once you do that we can have a real conversation based on facts. Until then, it's evident you don't have a clue of what you're talking about.
Two of the assistant chiefs don't do a thing. Add up their two salaries including benefits and you are $350,000. Put that money towards hiring six more officers and put them in a proactive unit like the vice squad or directed patrol unit and you can make a real difference.
Please, don't try and tell me those two extra positions are needed or they have duties that will have to be placed elsewhere. I know much better than that but obviously havent got a clue.

wmarincic, keep up the good work. Its evident you know what you are writing about. Just some further information, I believe Albany to have approx 330 officers to Schdy's current 135 or so. I would like to see anyone compare the call/crime/arrest statistics of the two cities and compare that to a per officer ratio. I'm confident it would shed some light on how understaffed the dept is and also how ridiculously top heavy it is.

Oh yes, because developers have been lining up around the block for the opportunity to develop this land since 1969... Really???

@nybadboy- 14 shots by three officer's happens in approx 2-3 seconds. You really don't have a clue of what you're talking about.
@Dan- Please provide some real data to support your statement that blacks are sentenced to twice as much time as whites around here. Ridiculous statement.
