ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Sheriff's Captain Tim Hanington was voted in as the Commander of the SWAT team by the interagency board.

With the new commander, comes new funding. The Albany city Commission, along with the county and school board will provide funding based upon the number of officers assigned from each organization.

"It will centralize it into much more of an organization process where you have one centralized funding source and one centralized budget, so everybody works together and it's better for the future as you move forward," said County Administrator Richard Crowdis.

The $30,000 budget, and the amount budgeted by each board, hasn't formally been adopted.

Hanington was contacted to comment about his new role as commander, but said he had not been formally notified about the decision by the chairman of the board.
