CRISP CO., GA (WALB) -

Crisp County Sheriff's Office is counting on its citizens to help fight crime one text at a time in "See It, Say It.

The new campaign if you see something say something.will allow citizens to text a message or call directly to the office if someone sees a crime in progress or something suspicious.

Sheriff Hancock says it's a way to connect with the community, and for residents to feel safe.

And that this will enable them to respond immediately if that text or call requires it.

Sheriff Hancock says “some of it may be a drug tip that we can work a day or two later but if somebody texts in and says hey I've got subjects walking down my alley toting weapons we want to go see. Maybe all they are doing is hunting squirrels or hunting birds but we want to go see what they are doing and what weapons they have.”

See It Say It is expected to launch by the first of next week.

Once the number is assigned we will have it here on our website and on WALB News 10.
