ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department is asking you to "Back the Blue" in a special way. 

Lieutenant O.C. Conley has been employed with APD for 29 years now. 

Conley has been on dialysis for seven years.

He is in need of a kidney transplant, and officers are asking for the community's support. 

Captain Wendy Luster helped set up a GoFundMe page to help Conley with any financial challenges that come along with his medical care.  

"I've known him for 21 years, and despite him having to have kidney issues, I have not one time known him to complain about anything," she said. "He comes to work faithfully every night, and he does he job.  We don't know if he's under the weather, because he doesn't show that to us. So we wanted to come together as an APD family to give back our love and support."
