Albany Police push Clean Car campaign with holidays coming

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   With the holidays coming, Albany Police continue to push their clean car program to try to prevent thefts out of automobiles.


 Tuesday morning officers handed out clean car mirror hangers outside the Starbucks on Meredyth Drive and at Phoebe Putney Hospital.  

 The officers reminded people to lock their doors and take valuables out of their cars.
With the holidays coming, they say crooks will be more active.


Corporal Brian Covington said "You are going to see us out in the shopping districts.  You are going to see us out continuing to promote the clean car campaign.  Continue to remind visitors, citizens, that when you come here, you leave your vehicles, take your valuables out of your car with you."


 Corporal Covington says entering auto crimes in Albany are down, and police feel their clean car campaign has helped.
