Schenectady Police Chief Mark Chaires
"He's no stranger to the Schenectady Police Department and is aware of its troubled past, but new Schenectady police chief Mark Chaires says the department that he's been in charge of for just over a month is already making progress. He cites as examples the implementation of new technology to help improve response times and his initiative to have consultants evaluate the way drug crimes are investigated.
Chaires takes on the job of Chief after starting as a patrol officer nearly 20 years ago, when the city and the neighborhood he called home was a different place."
