CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

A Cordele man wants the city to put more streetlights on the west side of the city.

He started a petition called "Lights On."

Signs can be seen in the city saying "west side too dark."

However, Cordele Police said that zone, zone 1, does not have more crime than other areas of the city.

And they patrol all over the city.

"We try to do our patrols city-wide, not zone-wide. So, we're not going to have more people in this zone over another zone because we have the whole city to be accountable for," said Lt. Ketorie Sales of the Cordele Police Department.

Since November 1st, there has been one burglary and one armed robbery, seven thefts and five assaults in that part of the city.
