Department Diversity

As of July 2015, the Albany Police Department had 327 sworn personnel, equivalent to one for every 300 residents of Albany. Of the 305 department personnel for whom gender was reported, 92% were men and 8% were women. Gender was not reported for any ranks above sergeant.

While the city of Albany is 50% white, its police department was 87% white. The remaining personnel was 11% black (35 people), 1% Hispanic (4 people), 1% Asian (3 people), and 1% other (2 people). The underrepresentation of women and people of color was constant across ranks.
