Thanks to everyone who works to keep our city safe including, but not limited to Headland Police Department Chief Mark D. Jones, the Henry County Sheriff's Department and Henry County E911.
According to Safewise.com
- 90% of the safest cities limited violent crime to less than two incidents per 1,000 people.
