ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police Department opened up Law Enforcement week Monday by rolling up their sleeves, and giving the gift of life.
The Department hosted the American Red Cross in a law enforcement blood drive. Law enforcement officers and their families were invited to come and donate blood.
Albany Police Sgt. Phyllis Walters said "This is giving back week. Giving back to the community to show them that they do care. And the best way to start, is by having this blood drive."
The goal for the Albany Police was for 20 officers to donate. Law Enforcement Week will include the annual memorial ceremony Thursday.
