LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Too often senior citizens are victims of crime because they're too trusting or because crooks see them as easy targets.

The Lee County sheriff's office wants to change that, they're holding monthly classes to help make the community safer.

A crime prevention class on Thursday was just for them.

Deputies say Lee County residents are encouraged to attend the meetings or contact them to help set up a neighborhood watch.

"We set up the classes, we have them once a month at the Lee County Library, plus we'll set up neighborhood watches in their neighborhoods, and come out and talk to them," said Lt. Keith Houston, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

The classes are held the last Thursday of every month at the Lee County Library on Highway 19.

For more information, call lieutenant Keith Houston at (229) 438-2294.
