18 October 2006: The Schenectady Police Department is looking for a few good men - about a dozen of them - to serve in the Capital District of New York State. According to an article in today's issue of The Times Union in Albany, police officials are looking to hire a dozen police positions, and they are actively recruiting from area mosques. According to police officials, at least two mosques have already been visited in search for candidates

"Character is the biggest asset when the Police Department recruits at religious places," stated (Schenectady) assistant police chief Mark R. Chaires, as reported by The Times Union.

It is unclear whether any recruiting efforts were conducted at the Masjid as-Salam mosque in Albany, where the imam and a co-founder of the mosque were recently convicted of terror-related crimes.
