ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Civil Rights Institute (ACRI) is helping the community build relationships with law enforcers.

Thursday, head law enforcement officials from all entities in Dougherty County spoke to the public on how to keep themselves safe for the upcoming holidays. Officials explained that its important to be careful with what you post on social media.

They also discussed issues like identity theft and appropriate behavior when coming in contact with law enforcement officers. 

"We've invited a lot of youth groups [so] that our children [will] 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 ACRI Executive Director Frank Wilson.
