Mid-South residents are ready to CLEAN UP!

Some Mid-South residents say it's time to clean up crime in their neighborhood.

Even if it means going door-to-door.

Hickory Hill Residents say CLEANING UP is the key to curbing crime.

Just a few months ago volunteers set out looking for code violations.

Neighbors wanted housing violations cleaned up before criminals move in.

Small problems, like trash left in someone's yard or broken down cars, send a message to crooks that no one cares about the area.

Today, volunteers from the Citizens Alliance and the East Precinct will go on a tour of two neighborhoods, looking for violations.

We'll have more on this story later on Action News 5 at Noon, 5, 6 and 10.
