Council to hold meeting on joining, starting neighborhood watches
Your neighborhood could be even safer right now, and there’s a way you can help make it happen.
The Council on Community Watches and Associations of Albany-Dougherty County is holding its quarterly meeting Saturday at 10 a.m.
It will take place at Putney United Methodist Church on Dorough Avenue, behind Mike’s Country Store.
Judy Bowles of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful said there are currently about 50 neighborhood watches in the Albany-Dougherty area.
You can find out how to join one of those watches or start your own at the meeting, which will also provide an opportunity to talk with other watches and share tips and tricks.
“This is the only way we’re going to get rid of crime and litter and the things we don’t want in our neighborhood is if we’re organized in the neighborhood and then organized under that by block-by-block,” Bowles said.
There will also be an update on storm recovery at the meeting, including information about different rules and regulations for rebuilding.
