ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany store owners are heeding advice from the police and removing some of the signs that block their plate glass windows.

We showed you Operation Street Sweep two weeks ago where Albany Police went store to store offering clerks safety tips.

One of their recommendations was to remove signs that blocked their front windows.

We found several convenience stores all over town had done just that making their stores more visible for officers to see in. Conveniences store owners say the initiative has sparked a new relationship for many store owners with police.

"We see them too, there's no posters so, we can see that they come around twice a day, they waive their hand and everything," said Petro Owner Rashmi Patel

Store owners say the increased police presence especially at night, has been a big help. Other tips store owners have followed include better positioning of security cameras and more frequent bank deposits.
