You may soon get a call when crime is near

You may soon get a phone call when crime is occurring in your Albany neighborhood.

The city is moving ahead with a new system called Code Red for Crime.

It will work much like the weather warning system.

If there is any type of criminal activity, a call will go out to neighbors in the area to let them know what is going on and how to respond.

"If you see a suspicious thing going on in your neighborhood, you notify the police, and then everybody in your neighborhood who has signed up for Code Red crime will be notified. That is wonderful, and it is going to help us to prevent crime and is going to help us to have more eyes on the streets to help the police to do their jobs better," says Dorothy Hubbard, Ward 2 City Commissioner.

Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard says Code Red for crime should go live soon because of cooperation between the city and county.
