ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A lot of police departments are making sure all officers patrol in pairs following attacks on police.

The Albany Police Department didn't change any techniques but officers are urged to be extra cautious every day.

"We understand what's going on and we are just really making sure our officers remember their training, remember to always be aware of their surroundings and to always look out for each other as well," said APD's Media Manager Phyllis Whitley-Banks.

Officers handling a situation that seems suspicious or dangerous are required to call for backup.
