Albany-- An Albany cop and a dedicated civilian are honored by the city for their work to make Albany a better place.

Sergeant Carmelita Preston was named police officer of the year. She's been with the Albany Police Department for 9 years and is part of the investigative unit. Ronnie Tate is the Citizen of the Year. He's a member of the Weed and Seed program, chairs his neighborhood watch and volunteers throughout the community.

"The title of officer of the year is a big title but there's other officers and citizens that help you become that title officer of the year. It's not something I do once a year. It's something a make a purpose to do all the time," says Preston.

"Being citizen of the year is earning respect from your peers and city and staying involved and helping neighbors out," says Tate.

The awards were given by Interim Police Chief Bobby Hooper. Honorees are chosen based on their actions throughout the year.
