Albany -- Albany Police wants better leadership within the department. That's why they're training their first-line supervisors under a leadership program.

Sergeants undergoing the program will learn more about personal accountability and how to evaluate and give feedback, along with 20 other topics.

Albany's Police Chief says these courses will benefit everyone because it will enhance APD's customer service with the community.

"One of the things that is emphasized is what can I do to help citizens get more engaged in our efforts to control crime and get a better community," said Chief James Younger.

Sergeants will spent two days a month completing the six day leadership course. Those sergeants started the program last week.
