APD offers 'business watch'

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police are asking business owners,  especially those in East Albany, to join them for a business watch organizational meeting at 6:00 at the East Albany Police Precinct Headquarters on East Oglethorpe Boulevard.     

Like a neighborhood watch for homeowners,  business watch will connect owners so they can work together to protect their businesses.     

Crime generally increases during the holidays, and Albany Police want businesses to be ready.  

"But if we have the business owners become more proactive, then they can step up their measures or include some steps to make themselves more fortified against any crime," said Michael Persley of APD.  

If you want more information about the program, call Albany Police at 431-2100.
