Cops bowl to "Stop the Violence"

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Our local law enforcement agencies got a little competitive Sunday night. It was all in good fun.

The Albany Police Department, Sheriff's Department, District Attorney's Office, and the Albany Ministerial Group showed off their skills in the "Stop the Violence" bowling challenge at the All American Fun Park.

It's a fundraiser to raise money for the "Stop the Violence" campaign which started last year.

"We're bringing the community together," said Dougherty County Sheriff, Kevin Sproul. "There is so much divisiveness from race to culture to religion. We're trying to show the kids we're coming together for a common cause to try and reduce violence in this community."

The Albany Police Department grabbed the first place trophy. The competition raised $500 Sunday night.
