ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The new Commander of the Albany Dougherty Drug Unit started work Tuesday.

Major Bill Berry served as ADDU commander from 1997 until 2005 and returned to Albany to take the post again.

Berry was the training director with the Mississippi Regional Counter Drug Training Academy when he decided to come back to ADDU.

He pledged that his drug agents will work with other local law enforcement agencies to keep drugs off Albany's streets. 

"Get together and work as a team, and try to go after the dealers," said Berry. "And let word go out, if you deal dope in Albany, we're after you. We're coming after you."

Berry said one of his first actions will be to review all agency policies and procedures... including the controversial pursuit policy.
