11/23/2012: This morning a police patrol car was blocking our driveway. Officers were across the street taking a report on a car break-in that had happened Thanksgiving eve.
This is the seventh incident of the same nature I’m aware of on the 1000 block of Talbot Avenue in the past months, our car being involved in two of them. The very apologetic officer who had come to take our report a few weeks ago had said that Albany Police does not have enough staff to patrol the streets at night.
Therefore, I was very surprised to see three Albany patrol cars and officers posted in front of the Albany Target store for their early opening on Thanksgiving evening!
