Albany -- Albany neighborhoods continue to step up efforts to fight crime on their streets.

The Doublegate neighborhood watch is one of the newer groups formed in Albany. Tonight organizers talked to neighbors about the role of block captains and ways to prevent crimes.

Neighbors say the group helps them rest easier.

All my neighbors have talked about it. We really feel good about looking after each other out here, and I think it's a great thing," said DGCC resident Fred Sumter.

The goals of neighborhood watch groups are to encourage neighbors to work together and to be aware of usual and unsual activities on their streets. Doublegate's neighborhood watch has grown to 380 people.
