ALBANY — Crime in the city and how police are dealing with criminals are topics up for discussion Saturday.
The monthly Town Hall meeting hosted by Ward I City Commissioner Jon Howard will have Albany Police Department Chief John Proctor as guest speaker at 10 a.m.
“Chief Proctor plans to interact with the residents in East Albany to bring them up to date on criminal activity and efforts to curtail it. He will also pass on seasonal crime prevention tips to residents as we head toward the holiday season,” said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman.
As always, the meeting will be at the East Albany Community Center, 1721 E. Oglethorpe Blvd., and is open to all residents and visitors.
“I hope you will adjust your busy morning schedule so that you can participate by asking questions or making comments about crime in our community,” Howard said. “This is a meeting you do not want to miss. Feel free to invite other concerned citizens to the meeting for important information.”
As with all meetings hosted by Howard, the 10 a.m. meeting will begin promptly and should end on time at 11:30 a.m.
