ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany and Dougherty County law enforcers say they need and want your help to fight crime.

At a community workshop today, the Albany Police Gang Unit and Dougherty County Sheriff's Office Juvenile crime unit showed some of the latest clothes and signs

gangs use to identify themselves. Brightly colored bandanas, beads, tennis shoes and hats with stars, even book covers in the color of their gang.

Police want you to know what to look for in your community to help them watch for trouble.

Albany Police Detective Schemika Foster said "Our goal is not to only come out when things are going bad. We want to provide resources to parents to prevent some of the crimes that are going on. To help them."

Dougherty County law enforcement agencies plan to hold another community workshop in May.
