Drop in emergency calls surrounding two Albany hotels since arrival of migrants
New data show a dramatic reduction in emergency calls at two hotels in Albany since migrants arrived in the area.
NewsChannel 13 obtained data from the Capital Region Crime Analysis Center.
The data show calls to Albany Police were cut in half since migrants moved into the Ramada on Watervliet Avenue and the Holiday Inn Express on Broadway.
In the two months before migrants came to Albany, there were 31 calls for “trouble with a customer” at the Ramada, according to the data.
The data also show that in the two months since migrants from New York City moved in, that number was reduced to three calls.
