Clean it and lock it
The Albany Police Department came to Pine Forest Apartments Wednesday morning to talk to people face to face.
"Clean it and Lock it" began today as APD officially launched the clean car campaign to remind people about the safety of their car and prevent the number of entering autos from increasing.
Corporal Brian Covington with APD says that they started this campaign so that it will really stick with people. He adds keeping electronics such as global positioning systems out the car is crucial along with money and purses.
Officers walked around the complex knocking on doors and checking cars. Quite a few cars didn't past the test of clean it or lock it. However, residents did seem happy to see officers talk to them about safety.
The officers will be moving from east to west Albany talking to people about the campaign and empowering them to remember to "clean it and lock it."
