Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
The Albany Common Council has appointed a new member to the Citizens’ Police Review Board (CPRB): Zach Garafalo.
Zach Garafalo is the Money Follows the Person Peer Outreach and Referral Program Director at the New York Association on Independent Living. Zach was formerly the Assistant Director at YOUTH POWER, where he began working after obtaining a Bachelor of Science in History and Politics at Southern Vermont College in Bennington, Vermont. In July 2013, Zach was honored as a Champion of Change at the White House. The Champions of Change initiative recognizes ordinary Americans who are doing extraordinary things in their communities to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.
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 at Albany Law School provides substantial support services to assist the Board in its duties and responsibilities.
