The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is going out into local neighborhoods to raise safety awareness.
It's a part of a Pedestrian Safety and Safety Awareness Campaign.
They visited Lenox Place Apartments Thursday afternoon, off Wrightsboro Road.
Deputies spoke to residents and passed out information on how to be safe when crossing the roadway and ways to secure your vehicle.
Lt. Randy Prickett is with the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.
"It's a combination of pedestrian safety and of course theft in the community type thing so we're combining both of them because there's a problem here with both those issues and we're gonna help the community address it and do what we can to resolve it."
More officer presence is expected in the area during and after the campaign.
