ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The new commander of Albany Dougherty SWAT unit says he doesn't have major changes in store for the team.

Sheriff's Captain Tim Hanington says the reorganization of the SWAT unit over the past year has only been for the better.

He says the 24 member team, made up of law enforcement officers from different agencies, is well trained and works cohesively.

"Everything is moving great right now. We're all moving forward. Our team is advancing. I have the upmost confidence in the men that serve for us," said Hanington.

Capt. Mack Green will remain the administrative Commander. Sgt. Alan Brock is the Training Director and the team is looking to name a new tactical coordinator soon.
