DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County officers warn residents that it's important to do research and be careful who you hire to do work around your home.

They said someone offering to do work on your property should be willing to show you their ID and give you a telephone number.

If they work for a business, officials said to make sure you get the name of that company and their supervisor, and that safety should be your top priority. 

"You don't want to just let anybody come into your residence, especially if you're by yourself. Because you're giving them the opportunity to see what you have inside your residence as well as if they start asking personal questions. When are you home? When do you go to work?" Said Patrolman David Flick with the Dougherty County Police.

Police also said that you should never give out your personal information to someone you don't know.
