Community crime forum to be held Tuesday

Are you concerned about crime in your community or neighborhood? Do you understand what law enforcement officials are doing to fight crime?

Are there certain areas or places that you avoid because of fear of crime? How much does crime affect the ability to attract new businesses and residents to Middle Georgia communities?

Law enforcement officials from Houston, Bibb and Peach counties will address these and other questions at a community forum called "Where Crime Happens," scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at the Douglass Theatre, 355 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The forum is sponsored by The Telegraph, Cox Communications, Mercer University and the Douglass Theatre.

Can't attend the forum? Send us your questions about crime, and we will try to get them answered at the forum.
