Posted by zachary on May 25, 2017

LendEDU recently released a report that highlighted the safest cities in Louisiana, and Zachary was ranked as one of the safest. Using licensed data, each city’s crime index was rated against the state and national average crime index. According to this report, Zachary has a crime index that makes it the #51 safest city in Louisiana!

“This award was received because of the hard work and dedication of the men and women of the Zachary Police Department, and the great citizens that live here.  OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE ZACHARY THE SAFEST COMMUNITY TO RAISE A FAMILY AND TO OPERATE A BUSINESS,” says Zachary Chief of Police David McDavid. 

“Most of our 17,000 residents know their neighbors, feel safe and secure in their homes, and enjoy the privilege of having good schools, churches, parks, and civic organizations. This safest city ranking is a major reason why families feel Zachary is such a desirable location to live, work and play,” says Mayor David Amrhein.
