Albany- Helping to bring freedom to Iraq is about to be the job of some South Georgia law officers.

Seven Albany Police officers will go from patrolling the streets of Albany to protecting the roads of Iraq.

APD gave the officers and their families a special send off today. They'll head to Iraq in early spring with the National Guard's 48th Brigade.

"It helps out a whole lot because when you see a familiar face in a foreign land then you feel more comfortable," said Sgt. Michael Persley. "I have told people that the reason a lot of us are going is that we're going to take the peace of Southwest Georgia with us."

The officers will all be on leave by the end of the week. They begin training this month.
