Bibb County Sheriff’s host “Walk for Safety”


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies are literally taking steps toward positive relationships with the community.

The group held its ‘Walk for Safety’ on Monday where deputies along with Sheriff David Davis walked the Stonefield community.

Lieutenant Randy Gonzalez says it’s all to figure out how both the department and Macon-Bibb residents can serve each other’s interests.

“We’re out here to find out what we can do to help the community, and we’re also out here to find out and let the community know how they can help us with fighting crime,” said Gonzalez.

They started at Porter Elementary School and went around the block to Jones road. Gonzalez says they want to empower neighborhoods in Macon. That starts with taking a walk in residents shoes.
