Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan has appointed a new member to the Citizens’ Police Review Board (CPRB): Michael A. Grady.
Michael Grady is a lifelong resident of Albany and graduated from Albany High School in 1986. He has worked for the Albany Housing Authority for nearly two decades. He currently holds the position of vice president for CSEA Local 801 Unit 1000 and was formerly vice president of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. He is also an active member of the Albany community as a board member for the Joyce E. King Foundation, Albany County 4th Ward Democratic Leader, and a grievance representative for CSEA.
The CPRB is an independent body established by the City of Albany in 2000 to improve communication between the police department and the community, to increase police accountability and credibility with the public, and to create a complaint review process that is free from bias and informed of actual police practice. In a unique arrangement, the Government Law Center of Albany Law School provides substantial support services to assist the Board in its duties and responsibilities.
