They were allegedly drunk, creating some problems for others and even begging. The Troy Police Department and City Of Troy have a department called Troy’s Community Police Unit to help curb these problems. The unit uses plain clothes officers to do the patrolling.

On Wednesday, the department paid off. Six people were arrested in the areas of Third Street, Congress Street and Fourth Street. This particular incident involved open containers. This was conducted between 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and future operations are in the works.

According to the article in The Times Union, The community Police Unit Supervisor Sgt. Sam Carello coordinated this particular operation.
