Lawsuit filed against Albany by Albany Police widow

A lawsuit has been filed against the City of Albany by the widow of an Albany Police Officer who died in the line of duty.

Douglas Mayville died four years ago. The 26 year veteran of the force spent years working with chemicals and toxins as a crime scene investigator before being diagnosed with Wegner’s disease.

Though he was honored on several occasions for dying in the line of duty, his wife Linda Mayville said she’s not getting the benefits she deserves, leading to the lawsuit being filed.

“It’s disheartening,” said Linda Mayville. “I think for Doug’s memory, he loved his job and unfortunately he’s not here to do it anymore.”

“What really appalls me is you want to take credit, and make Doug a hero, name a dog after him, and ask her to pose in front of the wall with all of the fallen officers,” said Retiree Chapter Council 82 President James
