ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of people gave blood on Monday at the Albany Police Department's annual blood drive. 

The blood drive kicks off Law Enforcement Memorial Week.

Over 30 different people donated blood. Many donors were officers. 

A large group of students from Turner Job Corps also gave blood. 

Corporal Dillard Glover said there is always a need for blood in the community. 

"I think it's really important because it is Law Enforcement Memorial Week. So I think it's a way of honoring our officers by giving the blood. So it shows a commitment to the community and it shows support for our law enforcement," explained Glover.

The American Red Cross ran the blood drive. 

Organizers are hoping to see more people come out next year.
