ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department celebrated two donations.

Firehouse Subs donated lifesaving automated external defibrillator equipment that will be housed at police headquarters.

The Department also got a one thousand dollar Neighborhood Community Grant to help put on community events such as National Night Out.

"It's very important because that takes a load off of our budget so it's always good that we have grant funding from all of these great resources. Because that means we don't always have to dip into our budget as much when we want to plan for community events," said APD's Media Manager Phyllis Whitley-Banks.

APD applies for grants every year based on the needs of the department.
