Albany-- Got a question for the sheriff of Dougherty County? All you have to do is ask.

 Sheriff Jamil Saba will answer your questions in a new newspaper column.

Sheriff Saba, who's been Dougherty County's top cop for 22 years, says he jumped at the chance to write a newspaper column to explain law enforcement issues. Saba said "Somebody mentioned to me one day, how come we don't put tips in the newspaper about how to do different things like traffic, how to handle guns, and different things about schools. And that's what we are doing. "

The sheriff's column will appear every other Tuesday in the Albany Herald.
