Neighborhood watch groups meet

June 27, 2007

Albany -- Public safety and elected officials want to spread the word about the need for neighborhood watches.  

You can find out more at a county-wide neighborhood watch rally. Thursday night in downtown Albany, about 20 neighborhood watch groups from throughout Dougherty county will come together to talk about what they can do to keep the streets safe.

They'll also discuss issues of concern with police and elected leaders. "We want to emphasize the need for the neighborhood watch program. Some parts of the city aren't aware of it and we want to get the word out," said Neighborhood Watch member Roger Marietta.  

The meeting will be held in front of the Government center at six Thursday night. Anyone interested in starting or joining a neighborhood watch group is encouraged to attend.
