Tell a cop thank you by posting a sign on New Year's Day

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany businesses leaders are challenging the community to post signs in their windows, or on their marquees saying "thank you" to Albany police for the work they do.

Commissioner BJ Fletcher says several businesses on Dawson Rd. have agreed to post signs, and have them ready to be on display for New Year's Day.

Fletcher says with the recent police brutality protests around the country she wants to make sure police here know the community has their back.

“January 1st please let the officers, the men and woman of this community, ride around, know how much they are loved and respected,” says Commissioner BJ Fletcher.

Fletcher says signs are also being made for businesses who don't have marquees.
