ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police Department needs your help in honoring fallen officers by participating in a blood drive.

To kick off Law Enforcement Memorial Week, APD is hosting a blood drive on May 14.

Corporal Dillard Glover explained there is always a shortage of blood in the community and this blood drive will serve as their way to get involved and give back.

Their goal is to have 50 people donate but right now they only have two people registered.

They are encouraging the community to give blood to honor the officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

"I think it's a way of showing respect for the law enforcement officers, showing some support and at the same time giving to a great cause," said Glover.

The blood drive will be Monday, May 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Albany Police Department at 201 West Oglethorpe Boulevard.

You can register by contacting the Albany Police Department.
