ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police Department swore in four new officers who will hit the streets soon to protect and serve.

Officer Joshua Jarrett says the most important thing he learned at police academy was interpersonal communication he believes will be especially helpful on domestic violence calls.

He says the training was tough, and he's ready to start his job.

"We just want to be visible in the community," said Police Academy Graduate, Joshua Jarrett. "With all the businesses opening in Albany, there is a need for more policing in the community. If I can do that, then it will make my day."

Jarrett will ride with another officer for at least three months before he can go out on his own.
