Tifton--Tifton Police are using the community's help to crack down on what they consider bad citizens.

Using a grant from the government, the initiative will help to seed out the bad and seed in the good. Tifton Police says the program works by having members of the community report any wrong-doings they see.

"We've formed a series of committees with the community and with the religious portion of the community and we can all collaborate on a weekly basis and say these are the things that are going on in our area. Help us get them out," says Detective Ricky Day of Tifton PD.

Anyone who sees suspicious activity or wrongdoing in their community is urged to call Tifton Police.
