|John Heard on CRIME|
Under John Heard's leadership, Gwinnett is recognized as Georgia's leader in community policing. Gwinnett's police officers treat all citizens with dignity and respect, but make no mistake, they are tough on crime and criminals.
Gaining the respect of the community has helped us reduce Gwinnett's jail population by 20% in the past five years.
We added 62 new police officers last year and will add more this year. Staying ahead of crime requires a terrific police force and a firm commitment to give them the support they need. We have that and more in Gwinnett.
PROVEN. EFFECTIVE. LEADERSHIP.
