      A town watch meeting was held this morning in east Albany, to teach residence how to better serve their community.

      Officers from code enforcement were on hand letting people know specific things to watch out for.

      Albany-Dougherty Code Enforcement officer, Robert Ponder, said it's the citizens job to report abandoned cars, gang graffiti, and dilapidated houses to police or code enforcement right away, " We want to keep the city of Albany as well as the east side of Albany looking good, we want to keep it as crime free as possible, and we want people to move here and be proud of our city when they come here to visit."

      Attendees also had the opportunity to ask questions on how to handle specific situation that may occur.
