APD hosts Community Awareness Day

Albany police say violent crime cases is one of the reasons they're reaching out to community.

The Department hosted its Community Awareness Day for several hours Saturday morning on W. Gordon Avenue to highlight resources available to citizens.

The department's Family Protection Unit teamed up with area organizations to help highlight the resources in our area.

"The victims don't reach out for help until they're fed up or it's an extreme case of violence," said Inv. Kwaski Barnes, Albany Police Department.

The Family Protection Unit wants to specifically reach out to demographics that are least likely to seek resources available to them.

In many cases they are the repeat victims of physical, mental, and sexual abuse.
