Albany - An Albany police officer who's willing to protect and serve, even when he's out of uniform, is honored for his commitment. Corporal Gary Price was honored as the 2003 Officer of the Year.

The five year veteran was off-duty when he came upon a fatal wreck on U.S. 19 in October. He called for help, tended to the injured, and prevented more injuries by stopping traffic.

"I wasn't thinking about getting hurt on the scene. I was just doing my job," said Cpl. Gary Price, Officer of the Year.

APD also named Dr. Maurice Cherry the 2003 Citizen of the Year. The former pastor of CME Memorial Church helped clean up the area around his church.

John Hudgins was given the Superior Service Award for his work supervising the new 14,000,000 Law Enforcement Center.
