ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of people got a free Thanksgiving dinner Tuesday night courtesy of the Albany Police Department at the Civic Center.
Police expect to serve about 1,200 people a free hot meal.
Their community dinner has grown every year. Police and their families spent hours getting things ready.
Organizers say it takes dozens of volunteers to get the job done and they couldn't do it without the support of businesses and churches.
"As law enforcement its important that we give back to the community that gives so much to us. Without the community it would make it difficult for us to do our job," said APD investigator Kawaski Barnes.
This is the fourth year for the annual thanksgiving feast.
