Monument honors fallen officers

March 11, 2008

Albany   -- They protect, honor, and serve; and now Dougherty County plans to honor peace officers killed in the line of duty.
 
The monument will honor five Albany Police Officers, two Dougherty County Sheriff's Officers and a Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Officer.  It's expected to go up in front of the Dougherty Judicial Building.  Right now, plans are being finalized.

"I'm supposed to meet this week with a person who's going to show me some plans, and we're going to get it, and design it, and see how we're going to do it, and then we're going to forward it to the commissioners, and let them know what it's going to look like, because they want things to look neat and we do too," said Dougherty County Sheriff Jamil Saba.

The money for the project was raised from private donations.  Right now, there's no deadline on when the project might be completed.
