Neighborhood comes together to fight crime

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People who live in an East Albany neighborhood near where Reginald Richardson was beaten say they work everyday to prevent crime and gang violence.  

Harold Williams patrols the streets as the Block Captain of Colonial Village Neighborhood Watch. Williams says he rides   through the neighborhood early in the morning hours, keeping an eye out for gang activity.

"But I carry my gun, and I like for them to see it when I wear it. We're to that point. If you are out at night you need to have a gun on. It's just that bad," he said.

The East Albany neighborhood watch is also working on a beautification project and three new flower beds will be dedicated Wednesday.
