ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Albany Police Department will partner with the American Red Cross for a blood drive next week in honor of Patrolman Tim Harvey.

Albany law enforcment officers have participated in blood drives in the past.  Having one of their own injured in the last week renewed their call to urge others to donate.

"The Albany Police Department and other law enforcement agencies came together as a family just in a time of need, when Tim needed us most, so we want to give that back to the community by having this blood drive, and having blood on hand during the critical summer months," said APD Media Manager Phyllis Banks.

The blood drive is open to the public and will be held Thursday July third from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Law Enforcement Center on West Oglethorpe Avenue. 

 To donate you must bring a photo I.D.
