Leesburg organizes to fight crime

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

LEESBURG, GA (WALB) –  Some folks in Leesburg have had it with crime. They're looking to take back their neighborhoods.

At the request of citizens, Leesburg Police organized a citywide Neighborhood Watch meeting tonight.

Police say neighbors are fed up with thieves breaking into cars and homes. They already set up a neighborhood watch in the Indian Oaks subdivision.

"This puts the citizens in control of what goes on in their neighborhood. If they see somebody walking in their neighborhood that doesn't belong, they need to give us a call, we need to find out, said Leesburg Police Sgt. James Vick.

Tonight's meeting will be held in the Magistrate Courtroom in the Courthouse Annex in Leesburg. It starts at six, and all Leesburg residents are invited.
