Albany Police AmeriCorps need your vote

The Albany Police AmeriCorps group is asking for your vote in an on-line contest, to make them the winner of a national AmeriCorps video contest.

This is the video that ten cadets of the Albany Police AmeriCorps produced to stop violence and crime in the community. The cadets wrote and sang the rap lyrics, made the video, and entered it for the national AmeriCorps video contest. The entry was selected as one of five finalists because it highlights the cadets good work.

Albany Police AmeriCorps cadet Gregory Barnes said "Our passion for kids and our passion for the good things in our community, so that keeps us going everyday."

The on-line voting for the Albany Police AmeriCorps video contest started today, and continues through July 30th. The grand prize is an all expense paid trip for the group to Washington D.C.
