ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany businessman says he was so dismayed by the way one Albany Police officer handled his wife's 911 call, he is considering moving.

Bobby Stanford has been talking and meeting with police and city officials for the last week, but says he is dumbfounded by their "incompetence."

Stanford's wife called 911 after a man followed his teenage daughter's car several blocks, and into their driveway, where he approached her. Stanford said it took more than a hour for a police to arrive, and then he didn't even have a pen or paper to write down the man's tag number.

After a week of complaints, all the way to the City Manager's office, Stanford said the last straw was Thursday night, when police investigators called and asked for the tag number again, because they could not find it.

"Totally incompetent," said Stanford. "Calling him in for counseling. My family doesn't feel safe. And truthfully I called a real estate agent to come look at our house to put it on the market and move out of Albany. Been here 58 years."

Bobby Stanford was born and raised in Albany, and he says he has never seen crime as big an issue as now. He calls on city officials to improve the Police Department.
