ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany Police officers are cooking up fund raising events to help local charities.

Thursday morning Team Albany Police held a breakfast and lunch fundraiser at the Law Enforcement Center.

Police department officials took time to cook eggs, bacon, and sausage, because they want to give back more to their community. The money raised will go the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.

"We've had several employees past and present that has been effected by cancer. Chief Boren for instance has passed of cancer and his son," said Albany Police Deputy Chief Wilma Griffin.

The cops hope to raise $1,000 each for the Cancer and Heart Associations.

Team Albany Police plan several more fund raising projects in the future.
