ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Civil Rights Institute is helping the community build relationships with law enforcers.
Head law enforcement officials from all entities in Dougherty County spoke to the public on how to keep themselves safe for the upcoming holidays. They also talked about appropriate behavior when coming in contact with law enforcement officers.
"We've invited a lot of youth groups that our children be able to see law enforcement as friends rather than enemies, somebody they need to fear, someone they need to run away from, but that they can embrace the law and that way I think it keeps us all safe," said Frank Wilson, Albany Civil Rights Institute Executive Director.
Law enforcers say it's important to be careful what you post on social media. They also talked about identity theft.
