Authorities in Albion are promoting efforts to help citizens fight crime in their day to day lives.

The Albion Department of Public Safety says that it’s easy to get a Crime Prevention or Neighborhood Watch group started, and that once you do there is “safety in numbers”. They say that a neighborhood working together can help establish a stronger connection between police and community, and can help reduce crime in your area.

Those interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch can contact the ADPS for assistance, and they will help get that first meeting set up for your community.
