In a positive move, Albany Police said this week they will share more information with other agencies. We should all thank Probate Judge Nancy Stephenson and anyone who will come forward and bring wrongdoing to our attention
Her car was stolen in December. Ultimately, it was the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office that solved the crime, and Stephenson says if APD had put out a bulletin on her car, like they should have, it would likely have been found weeks ago.
Stephenson said "People in this town are feeling more and more under siege from criminals."
Even though she reported it stolen to Albany Police, she was stunned to learn APD didn't even ask other local law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for it.
Finally Stephenson asked the Dougherty County Sheriff's office for help and Monday, they found the car, and arrested the man driving it.
Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek, Sheriff Jamil Saba acknowledged they get little lookout information from Albany Police, and would welcome more. Now APD will share more. Good. We encourage all Law Enforcement Agencies to work together.
We want you to put the fear in the criminals and help take the fear away from the law abiding citizens who are afraid they will be the next crime victim.
