OUR VISION

Our goal is to engage our community and law enforcement on various levels.

To engage the community with police and law enforcement entities, thereby establishing unity, trust, and respect. 

 

We provide a platform that influences a change from negative hearts, minds, and attitudes to positive ones. 

 

We strive to build stronger, safer, and more peaceful communities. 

 

This is accomplished by serving as a bridge, liaison, and voice of reason, for both valuable entities

OUR MISSION

ALERT's mission is to make Capital Region communities safer by strengthening the bond between our residents and the police and law enforcement.

Therefore, the sole purpose of ALERT is to create engagement opportunities.

To accomplish this, we facilitate healthy relationships which are built when we talk openly and honestly in a positive setting. ALERT promotes positive dialogue which increases trust.

Through our partnership with community, police, and law enforcement entities, we have a Collaborative Network that builds a bridge between these groups. This unlocks the wisdom within our communities so we can realize our greatest potential.

To improve our communities and heal our Capital Region home, it will take ALL of us. ALERT brings these entities together!

HISTORY

Founded in September of 2014, in response to rising tensions both locally and nationally, the Albany Law Enforcement Resolution Team (ALERT) was established to serve as a liaison between the residents of Albany and the members of police and law enforcement agencies.


ALERT focuses on facilitating open communication and building partnerships between the police, law enforcement, and all members of our local communities.

OUR GOAL

Our desire is to bring understanding, respect, and trust to the region by engaging our community, police, and law enforcement. 

 

We stand for justice as a mediator between all parties ensuring a peaceful platform where the community can voice concerns and develop solutions that are practical.

OUR STRENGTHS

The strength of ALERT is in the ability of the leadership to connect with the community, and the various entities of the police and law enforcement.

 

Understanding the community from a residential perspective and learning how police and law enforcement operate gives us an advantage when we bring these entities together.

 

Therefore, the partnerships that are developed between ALERT, our other community partners, and police and law enforcement partners are priceless in ensuring that our region remains as safe and as peaceful as possible.

WHAT WE DO

ALERT provides a platform for healthy conversation between the community, police, and law enforcement throughout the year. We act as a liaison between the community and police when the residents are trying to navigate an often complex judicial system.

 

This dialogue promotes greater trust and understanding between both entities. With relationships built on a strong foundation, when the peace of the city is threatened by unrest, it is more likely to have minimal fallout and destruction.  

INITIATIVE

ALERT is event driven. Our mission is motivated by our engagement efforts.

These remarkable events are a means to an end… not the goal itself. Therefore, we will continue seeking creative engagement opportunities, so our events do not become stagnant.

 

Being event driven, ALERT provides various avenues for engagement throughout the year through:

  • Community Leader, Police, and Law Enforcement Summit 

  • Unite The City Carnival; events for the entire family

  • All Star Challenge; events for youth and young adults 

  • Improving Your Quality of Life; events for all residents

  • Albany Bridge Builder’s Awards Ceremony
