Albany -- An East Albany neighborhood celebrates their crime prevention efforts. Residents of Pine Bluff Country Estates held a cook-out full of some early summer fun.

They celebrated the success of their neighborhood watch program that has been in place for the past year and a half.

And now Providence Church in Albany wants to get involved in helping this mobile home community steer clear of crime.

"Our neighborhood watch is going great. It's a community thing. The people in the park get involved and that is when crime has got to go," said park manager, Rick Walls.

"One of the things we want to do is offer some after-school programs for the kids," said Providence Pastor, Jason Spears.

The park manager said there hasn't been a break-in in over a year since they've started their neighborhood watch program.
