Community Update – August 2016
Peachtree City sets up Community Policing
Chief Janet Moon has revamped Peachtree City’s policing program with a focus on connecting with the community. The police department, in conjunction with fire rescue frequently posts community information along with positive news about goings on with the City’s first responders on their Facebook page,Peachtree City Police Department and Peachtree City Fire and Rescue and theirTwitter page.
The police website page is another opportunity for engagement. There, citizens can sign up to receive alerts. Citizens can also file complaints. This type of ongoing communication helps build public trust.
In April, the police department launched acommunity policing program, headed up by Sgt. Brian Eden. The goal was to “define what an individual’s door was” and meet them there. This could be a home, a neighborhood meeting or any place that people gather. Each of the 179 neighborhoods has an assigned officer. The list of community officers and their contact information is list by neighborhood on thewebsite.
