Albany Police officers hang out with folks they serve

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police interacted with the people they protect and serve Tuesday night.

Law enforcement agencies all over the country held National Night Out events Tuesday to fight crime by improving community relations and encouraging people to get to know their neighbors.

APD's event at the Albany Civic Center included music, games, and giveaways, including school supplies.

APD Media Manager Phyllis Banks said, "This is a great opportunity for the Albany Police Department to come together with the community to interact with them and show that fellowship against crime."

Police say so many people donated school supplies, they're not sure how many they gave away.
