Gone fishing with Albany Police Department

Gone fishing with Albany Police Department

It's great weather to be outside and do some fishing.

Today Albany's Crime Prevention Unit hosted a fishing event for families on Ken Gardens Dr. There was also free food for families. Police say this is just one more way they can connect with the community.

"It's all about community just letting people know that Albany Police Department is here for them. And just all about having fun and bonding with the police here in Albany," Phyllis Walter said.

This is the first year for the event and they hope to  continue the tradition.
