Albany-- Members of the law enforcement community who gave their lives in the line of duty were remembered with a service in Downtown Albany.

Flowers were placed on a wreath in memory of eight South Georgia officers, five from the Albany Police Department, one from the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Police and two from the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.

One was Stewart Williamson's father, Tommy. He's now a patrolman with the Dougherty County Police Department. He's honored to pay tribute to his father and follow in his law enforcement footsteps.

"I didn't know my father that well. He died when I was three but from what I'm told, he was a great man and a great officer. He was a man of his word. If he told you something he was going to do it," says Williamson.

Captain Tommy Williamson and his partner Lieutenant Albert Duane Clark were killed in a fiery crash on Highway 300 in Crisp County in November of 1988.

Also honored were Patrolman Marion C. Collins, Chief Robert S. Wallis, Patrolman Earl B. Crenshaw, Patrolman Thomas W. Dunbar, Patrolman Randy E. Brown and Chief John Ross Juneau.
