Albany-- Mayor Dr. Willie Adams has asked for and been granted police protection after receiving threats.

Mayor Adams says he received several threatening phone calls after he asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to investigate the handling of a sex case involving a Westover High School teacher.

Now, a police captain is escorting Adams during public meetings and appearances.

Adams says he doesn't know who made the calls and says the officer will likely guard him until the investigation is over.
