ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Saturday representatives from a number of law enforcement agencies in Dougherty County made themselves available to provide information about the role they play in building stronger families.

Representatives from about ten agencies took time to inform the public about how they can make where they live safer.

They talked about how to identify gang members and gave other safety tips.

We talked to one Albany Resident who told us more people should attend events like these.

She says communication can't happen without the other side being there to listen.

"If the come out to see how they can prevent things before they happen, it will help solve a lot of problems," Tee Taylor, Albany Resident.

This was the second such event hosted by law enforcers, they reminded the audience they can't be everywhere, and need citizens to be their eyes and ears so they can get the information needed to solve crimes.
