Albany--  Three people earned top honors from the city for their work to improve the community in 2007.

Albany Police Chief James Younger awarded the Officer, Citizen and Civilian of the year at Tuesday's city commission meeting. Corporal William Dale Henry was honored as officer of the year for his work in several investigations and his role in the successful conclusion of the Jack Camp murder case.

Harold Williams received the 2007 Citizen of the Year award. He's seen his East Colonial Village neighborhood change since he implemented a neighborhood watch program.

"That's a great thing for me. I was kind of shocked when they called me. I'm very excited. I asked 'what did I do?' and they said a lot of hard work," said Williams.

The Civilian of the Year Award was given to APD Property/Evidence Custodian William Sparks. Chief Younger calls him a tremendous asset to the department for his hard work.
