Albany -- Another northwest Albany neighborhood kicked off a neighborhood watch tonight. More than 100 Doublegate residents met with Albany police.

Cops talked to them about how a crime watch program works and that it works best when neighbors stay committed to looking out for each other.

People who showed up say the program makes them feel safer.

"I see my neighbors here at the meeting like this, and I know who's here and who to look for," said resident Bob Grodemange.

"This past weekend we've had nine burglaries in this northwest section and it's a lot of people are afraid that's going to continue into their houses," said watch organizer Charles Gillespie.

There are 371 homes in the subdivision, and neighbors say they'll be on the lookout for anything that looks out of place.
