What we are accomplishing

Since Robbie Ramirez was killed in November of 2018, ACoPP has been demanding changes in transparency, accountability, and reforms in policing and local government.

Here’s how:

ACoPP organized a petition demanding body and dash camera footage. We delivered nearly 600 Albany County signatures. 

Community members gathered to discuss police reforms they wanted from local law enforcement. We produced a report of their findings, available here. 

After Corporal Colling was not indicted by a grand jury, community members demanded more transparency. The grand jury proceedings were not public information, but we continued fighting for access to information. 

We broke the news that Colling was back on duty.


Shortly after Colling returned to work, Robbie’s family gave ACoPP the autopsy results. We published a review of the findings with help by former coroner, KC Vernon. The full autopsy report was published in the effort of transparency on our website. 

Six months after Robbie was killed, the community was still demanding answers and change. On April 16th, dozens of community members demanded that County Commissioners publicly address Corporal Colling’s continued employment in the interest of public safety and trust. 

Despite public outcry, several county officials have demonstrated no intentions of working with community members on police reforms. 

ACoPP is going to continue pursuing meaningful police reforms through the use of community oversight boards of law enforcement.

We hosted an educational community forum on August 29th to inform the public what oversight of police can look like.
