ALBANY, GA (WALB) - First responders from Dougherty and Lee County faced off in competition Wednesday a Bar-B-Que cooking contest.

The 6th annual Law Enforcement Memorial Week Cook off was held at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge. A record 14 teams took part representing law enforcement and other emergency agencies.

 This year's theme was remembering fallen officers. A.D.D.U. Captain Andy Exum said "This is a time for us to all get together and honor all the law enforcement and public safety people who have fallen. Get together as a group to celebrate that."

This is a fun contest, but the men and women involved are serious about the competition. They cooked wings, Chicken, and Ribs.
