The Peachtree City Police Department always aspires to provide the best service possible to its citizens through the use of progressive policing techniques and equipment. The addition of a K-9 program would be a welcome crime-fighting tool for the Department, as well as an asset to the community.
Ways a K-9 unit benefits the community:
• Probable cause to search vehicles / major deterrent to bringing in drugs
• Sweeps of school lockers and parking lots / deterrent to drugs in our schools
• Residential searches for well-hidden drugs or paraphernalia
• Package searches / Peachtree City has a parcel distribution center and an airport
Tracking / Searches
• K-9s track fleeing suspects
• K-9s can help find lost or missing children
• K-9s work quickly and effectively in clearing large buildings
Officer Safety / Crime Deterrence
• A K-9 obeys commands to assist during physical confrontations
• A K-9’s presence often deters confrontations and fleeing suspects
• Public appearances and K-9 demonstrations at community events
• Guest “speakers” for DARE classes, Citizen’s Police Academy classes, and other
events as requested
The start-up cost for two K-9s, training, and equipment is $40,000. We greatly appreciate Panasonic’s donation of $13,000 to kick-off the fundraising effort. You can help provide this valuable resource to Peachtree City’s crime-fighting front line!

The Peachtree City Police Department and FACTOR (Fayette Alliance Coordinating Teamwork Outreach and Resources), the Fayette Family Connection Collaborative, have joined together to bring community awareness to this need and coordinate fundraising opportunities. Previously, they coordinated resources to form the Fayette Meth Task Force to educate the community about a frightening plague. Now we are eager to spread the word on this new program as well.
