Peachtree City Named Safest Town in Georgia

To test the theory that small cities and towns are the safest places in America, MoneyGeek analyzed crime statistics by quantifying the cost of crime and ranking 660 small cities and towns nationwide and in every state.

Sign up for Citizen Police Academy

How do cops do their job?


The Peachtree City police department aims to answer that question at its annual citizens' police academy.


Now in its 21st year, the citizens' police academy teaches residents how crime scenes are processed, how traffic laws are enforced, and how officers take a suspect into custody while protecting themselves and others from harm.


The 10-week course also includes a ride-along with an officer and a tour of the 911 communications center.


Applications for the citizens' police academy are now being accepted. Participants must be at least 18 years old and pass a background check.
