Cops enjoy day of barbecue battles

May 18, 2005

Albany -- Albany Police and Public Safety workers faced off Wednesday in some serious competition. They heated up the grills,to find out who could cook the best ribs and chicken.

It was the second annual Law Enforcement Memorial Week Bar-B-Que cook off. Four teams of police officers and public safety workers started grilling at six AM.

They had separate division for chicken, ribs, and hot wings. At 11:30 a group of local Bar-B-Que lovers judged, to see which team had the best grilled delight.

And in the end, a tie for grand championship. But that was just part of the fun. Lt. Ryan Ward said "Camaraderie. It's competition, but we all friends afterward."

Corporal Graham Stacy said "Mostly just to have fun, the camaraderie, the fellowship of the department and the other members around."

A lot of good fun and Bar-B-Que for the officers, as part of Law Enforcement Memorial week.
