Albany -- City of Albany employees are going through training courses about their new drug policy, which will require random testing.

Tuesday morning, about a dozen city supervisors learned about the city's new drug free workplace policy. In the past only city workers who had safety sensitive jobs like Police or Firefighters, or drove vehicles were subject to random testing.

The revised policy covers all one thousand-plus employees, including elected officials. They'll undergo these training and information sessions to explain the revised policy. Human Resources Manager Johnnie Johnson said "When we say we are a drug free work place, we absolutely mean that's what we are, a drug free work place."

The drug policy training sessions for city of Albany employees will continue through March 8th, then the random testing is scheduled to start.
