Anti-crime initiative starts

Bishop Frederick Williams Bishop Frederick Williams
ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Stop the Violence leaders in Albany are kicking off a new campaign to prevent crime.

Bishop Frederick Williams is encouraging you to help stop violence by cleaning and protecting your own neighborhood.

Williams says rundown areas become breeding grounds for crime, and he wants folks to get to know their neighbors and encourage them to clean up.  

"People are terrified of who are living in those houses at night and what kind of activity is going on. So how can we stop violence if we're creating it in our own communities?" asked Stop the Violence Organizer Bishop Frederick Williams.

Williams says if you want help in your neighborhood, call them they'll help rally one block at a time.

Just call 229-438-0388 or 436-0009.
