Seeks countywide anti-crime program



I support the "Weed and Seed" program in the Barton Village subdivision. I know Barton Village is not the only troubled area in south Augusta or the Augusta-Richmond County area.

I live in a south Richmond County subdivision and we have had an increase in crimes too. Recently, someone broke into one of my cars and stole a tape player and other items. It's time to stop dividing our communities, and stand together. Many other communities in Augusta-Richmond County also can use the help of our law enforcement.

The Weed and Seed program should be consolidated into one program countywide, then every citizen of Augusta-Richmond County would share equal community involvement and law enforcement protection. ...
