ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The city of Albany is backing the blue.
City commissioners passed a resolution supporting the initiative started by Gieryic's Automotive Repair Owner, Tom Gieryic.
He's encouraging businesses and individuals to put up signs.
"Which means that we are saying to our police officers and to our community and to any visitors that we thank our officers for what they do and we support them in what they are doing," said Dorothy Hubbard, Albany Mayor.
Mayor Hubbard and the Commissioners were given signs to put out in neighborhoods in their wards.
