Albany Police Department News

Albany Officers Slusher and Coutinho had three visitors this afternoon that brought cookies to the Police Department and Fire Department as part of the Worship with your Hands group from the Albany United Methodist Church. Thank you for the goodies!

As you travel through the area of SR 67 and SR 28, be prepared to STOP!!! INDOT is installing new traffic control devices in the next few days. This will no longer be a cautionary light on SR 67 or a stop sign on SR 28. This will become a Stop Light for ALL directions. Please pay close attention to the recent changes in lane traffic control and the installation of the new stop lights.

Thank you to everyone that was able to come out and support us today for our golf outing. The winning team this year was Team Gaddis!! Thank you Steve Gaddis for your support! Also a huge thank you to our hole sponsors and especially Travis Arnold of Albany Door and Arnold's Mulch for being the event sponsor this year!!

The Albany Police Department is conducting a Burglary investigation. Among items stolen was a large collection of Authentic Civil War clothing and memorabilia. Anyone with information, please contact Chief Henry.

PSA - When calling 911, make sure that you pay attention to how the operator answers the phone. They will answer it as Delaware County 911, Randolph County 911, or Jay County 911. Pay attention when calling to which county they say they are from. There are times that your address may verify as a valid address in their county as well. Dispatchers do their best make sure that verify which county you are calling from but make sure to listen yourself as well and if they answer as one county and you are in a different county, the dispatch center can transfer you to the correct 911 center. Cell phone services hit a tower and those towers are directed to certain 911 centers which means though you may live in Delaware County, you may hit a Randolph County tower which will direct your call to Randolph County 911. We know your emergency is important so help us help you and make sure to pay attention to what county has answered your call for help!!!!!!

Mark your calendars now and plan on attending this years Albany Police Reserves Golf Outing! Proceeds go to help purchase equipment and training needs for Reserve Officers. Hope to see you there!

A couple things for the summer: First, the 4th of July festivities in Albany this year will be July 1st with a car show, games in the park (starting at 1:00pm) a D.J. at the ball diamonds later in evening and during fireworks at dusk. The Albany Police Reserves, along with MTAC, will be offering a unique opportunity for patrons to try some target shooting using simunition rounds with the proceeds going to purchase equipment for the Reserves. Also, the Reserves will be holding our First annual Cornhole Tournament for $20.00 (each 2 person team) and trophies to the first and second place teams. The BIG raffle is for a Henry Big Boy Lever Action 44mag Rifle. Tickets are available as of today for $20.00 a ticket. The drawing will be held at the Halloween Parade in Albany on October 28th after the Parade. You do not have to be present to win but will have to pass a background check upon winning.
