Crime victims remembered in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks gathered in Albany to remember and show support for victims of crime, Thursday night.

A vigil at Veterans Park was held to support surviving victims of crimes and remember those who lost their lives.

Representatives from Dougherty County law enforcement agencies joined victims and their loved ones.

Organizers say it's important to support victims.

"A lot of times people tend to feel that because someone is arrested that's the end of it. The victim is often forgotten, but in actuality the pain continues for them a lot of times," said organizer Tonya Hall.

Carnations were pinned on a wreath in remembrance of crime victims.
