ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Law enforcement officials from across South Georgia are learning how to keep our streets safer. 

Albany State University hosted the United States Secret Service for an anti-terrorism conference on Tuesday. 

Members of the secret service spoke with officers about several terrorism related topics. 

That includes terrorism trends and behavior-based approaches officers should follow. 

Members of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office attended the training. 

Captain Craig Dodd said he thinks with all of the violence nationwide, the training is more important now more than ever. 

"There's a lot of things you can pick up just from talking to someone in an interview," explained Dodd. "They may not be someone you are actually going to arrest, but a person of interest. And this helps you know what to look for."

Members of the Albany and Dougherty county police departments, as well as Lee county law enforcement attended the training.
