Guardian Angels Planning Capital Region Return
The Guardian Angels led by Curtis Sliwa could be visiting Schenectady again very soon.
According to the The Daily Gazette, volunteer street patrol group the Guardian Angels are planning a return to the Schenectady area no later than mid-August. A trip to the Hamilton Hill neighborhood has been prompted by a number of requests from residents, including seven just last month. The group once established a Schenectady chapter in the mid-2000', but it quickly lost members and went away. "We will always get a lot of people asking about Hamilton Hill. It's what people feel is a dangerous location, especially at night," said leader Curtis Sliwa. The group is actively trying to form Albany and Schenectady chapters. The Guardian Angels formed in 1979 in New York City to intervene in fights or disputes, calm down situations, and when warranted, make citizen arrests. It currently has 130 chapters around the world.
Do think the Guardian Angels presence will be good for the Capital Region?
