Albany Police use social media for recruiting

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - As they continue to search for new officers, the Albany Police Department released a new recruiting video on Facebook Monday.

The department hired the Levee, a local production company, to make two versions.

The videos show Albany Police officers at work doing everything from talking to citizens to SWAT team maneuvers.

APD hopes it will help attract younger and high quality applicants.

"We're hoping it will be able to tell our story, captivate people, not only through the video, to also give us a talking point to let them know more about the Albany Police Department," said Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks.
