ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Albany Police Department is going into the next fiscal year with a budget surplus, but that's not necessarily a good thing.

Chief John Proctor says he has about $2.7 Million remaining in his budget this year because of vacancies within his department.

He hopes to bring on a total of 50 people by the end of the year. And he has a wish list to help them perform better. He wants more technology, like computers and cameras in patrol cars to help with efficiency. 

"This is my wish list. I am obligated to share with them what I feel I believe is necessary for me to do a good job and my staff to do a good job. I shared that with them, and they seemed to indicate that they are willing to consider those," said Chief Proctor.

The total budget request for the Albany Police Department is approximately $16 Million.
