Colonie has dropped to #14 in the CQ Press city crime rate rankings (of cities with population 75k or more) -- it had been #7 last year, and topped the rankings released in 2010 and 2009. Albany ranked #313, down from #295 the year before. Driving down the rankings in both municipalities, say police chiefs to the TU: property crimes. (As touched on last year, these rankings have critics.)
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
