Albany--  An Albany husband and wife crime-fighting team got some top honors.

Albany Police Chief James Younger presented Sergeant Kendra Wilson and Corporal Bennie Wilson with Officer of the Year honors at the Albany City Commission meeting.

Sgt. Wilson cleared more than half of the 164 cases she investigated in 2006. She also solved two murder cases and recovered $30,000 in stolen property.

Cpl. Wilson helped to identify three burglary suspects.  That helped to close 45 burglaries. He also helped to capture some copper thieves and an armed robbery suspect.

The married APD team were all smiles as they received their honors.
