"Rolling with first responders"

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany Police will be lacing up their bowling shoes this evening for their third "Rolling with First Responders."

The event is geared to bring community members and law enforcement together over a friendly game at the All-American Fun Park. It also honors officers who have fallen.

Detective and organizer Chanita Salyer says every year they look forward to seeing new relationships take shape. She believes socializing in neutral space helps bring people together.

"A lot of them are very excited, you know, [they say] 'I'm not a regular bowler,' but hey just come out and have some fun," said Salyer.

The event kicks off at All-American Fun Park at 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. located off of 2608 North Slappey Blvd.

The fee for each bowler is $25 and $75 per team.  All funds collected will help provide future community events this summer.
