Albany Police were out in full-force Wednesday to keep everyone safe during the 4th of July celebration downtown.

With hundreds of Southwest Georgians invading Albany for the evening, Albany Police were on high alert to make sure everyone was safe, and having a good time.

"Ensure that everybody is safe, and that they go home, clear the area with the traffic control. And to make sure that the juveniles are being picked up by their parents, and that we clear the area safely."

The Police Department will be making sure everyone returns home safely and enjoys the event, for many years to come.
