ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police say they are making some progress fighting burglaries, but they still need the community's help.

There were nine burglary, theft by taking, or criminal trespass crimes reported to the Albany Police over the weekend, including one at the House of God on South Madison Street.

Someone broke the back window and bent the steel bars but did not make it inside.

Church members put up new motion detector lights, repaired the glass, and asked neighbors to keep an eye on their building.

Police say that community help is the best protection.

Please call the Police," said APD Det. Terrance Bryant. "We're here to protect you the citizens, and the only way we can do that is through community involvement."

Police say the number of burglaries in Albany in December was actually down slightly from a year ago, and Police cleared more of last month's burglaries with arrests.

But they say people need to continue to work together to prevent those crimes.
