Moultrie - As part of that program tonight, the Moultrie Police Department is asking everyone to stand up against crime.

Sgt. Roger Miller of the Moultrie Police Department is working to kick crime out of town. He says it can be done by earning the community's trust. "If people feel they can trust you," he says, "they'll be more willing to talk to you and to tell you things that's going on in the community."

Police say your part in fighting crime is easy. All you have to do is turn on a light, because it's easier to ward off criminals when the community works together.

Sgt. Miller says, "We're asking everybody to turn on their outside lights to show support." Support of those who keep the streets safe everyday.

"That will deter a lot of crimes," he says, "you can be proactive in out doing and working on those things that are being done wrong in the community, you can correct them."

If everyone works together, hopefully criminals will think again before stopping in this town.
