Albany -- Friday night,  a veteran Albany Police officer became the fifth candidate to announce his run for Dougherty County Sheriff.

APD Lieutenant James Williams ran unsuccessfully for Sheriff in 2004.

At his election headquarters on Dawson Road, he announced he'll try again.

Williams says his experience makes him ready for the job.

"We've been with the city for the past 25 years. We've worked every major case from 1986 until now. We have been able to get a good clearance rate, a good conviction rate and we want to make to make this community safe. That's what we're going to continue to do as sheriff, is to be a servant to this community," said Williams.

Albany Police Lt. Benita Childs and 17-year A-P-D veteran Lorenzo Lockett are also running for sheriff along with Dougherty County Deputy Kevin Sproul and Corporate Security Investigator Kirk Smith.
