ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Dougherty District Attorney says it's time for law enforcement and city leaders to host a "State of Albany Meeting" on violent crime gripping the community.
D. A. Greg Edwards says because of the rash of recent business robberies and burglaries and rise in community fears, law enforcement and community leaders need to come to terms on the real state of crime in Albany.
"We want to make sure that we have information made available to the public about where we stand with violent crime. And I want the community as a whole to come in and help us all deal with abating violent crime," Edwards said.
Edwards says he knows people are concerned and frightened by this rash of violent crime, and will announce plans for his state of Albany crime community meeting soon.
