Albany  --  The Albany Police Department will soon have a new voice to inform the public of what's happening within the city.

Phyllis Banks has been offered the position of public information officer for APD.  The department was looking for someone who knew how to better connect with the media.

Since Banks has seven years experience as a reporter and anchor with TV station WFXL, she says she's prepared for the challenge.

"I hope that's what I'll become." Banks said.  "That connection between not only the media and the police department, but the community as well. That will be my main objective is to make sure information is put out in a timely manner.  To coordinate with the media so that information is put out accurately."

Banks begins with the Albany Police Department October 22nd. This is the first time a civilian has been selected for the public information position.
