Milton has recently been ranked the 39th least dangerous city in the country by Neighborhood Scout. Their research reveals the 100 safest cities in America with 25,000 or more people, based on the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Only three other Southeast cities ranked among the top 50 safest, with Milton and Johns Creek as the only Georgia cities in the top 100. This honor is the latest acknowledging how safe Milton is, per capita, relative to other places in Georgia, the Southeast, and beyond.
The fact Milton earns such national distinctions on a regular basis suggests that people outside our borders understand how special the city is and the high quality of life found here. While City employees (particularly our first responders) play a role, the respectful, caring, altogether wonderful people who live and work in Milton are most responsible for the city’s special nature and the honors that come because of that.
The Milton Police Department is committed to community partnerships through which they can address crime and public safety concerns. They are continuously seeking and developing new means to provide enhanced support to the community in a cost-effective way.
Milton Police and Citizens Together (MPACT) is a great program that connects Milton's residents and businesses with its police. MPACT provides each community member with a direct line of contact to the Police Department, based upon the individual’s location.
Here’s how it works: The city is divided into four zones with Milton's Uniform Patrol Division lieutenants each working directly with two of these zones. These lieutenants can assist with any issues or requests that you, your greater community, or your business may have. These might include traffic concerns, a neighborhood watch, law enforcement education or assorted quality of life issues.

In April 2019, the Milton Police Department hired Public Safety Ambassadors (PSAs) to assist with some of the non-sworn-officer policing work in the community. PSAs are non-sworn employees who work alongside sworn police officers in the field, providing vital services so that officers may focus their time on functions that only officers can do, thus maximizing our finite staff resources.
PSA are part-time employees of the Milton Police Department and the City of Milton, and they perform the following routine and specialized duties:
- Traffic control
- Residential/business/vacation checks
- Respond to dispatched calls for service
- Assess situations and take appropriate actions under their role/responsibility
- Prepare formal reports
- Assist with special events
- Perform first aid
- Perform community outreach
- Assist with crime prevention programs
