The Albion Police Department provides municipal police services within the Village of Albion 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Village rests within the Towns of Albion and Gaines, along the Erie Canal and is the Orleans County seat. Twelve sworn personnel comprise the department – which has a command staff of a chief, a staff sergeant, and one sergeant commanding each of three platoons. One officer is assigned to the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force full-time. The Village’s “on-call” animal control officer and school crossing guard are civilian members of the police department. The department has a police canine (K9) and sponsors a law enforcement exploring post. We operate a fleet of “black and white” police vehicles. Characteristic of many smaller departments, several of our personnel take-on multiple roles within the department.
