The article continues:
“Safewise made the following note about Sandy Springs:
Since Sandy Springs incorporated 10 years ago, the community has enjoyed a noteworthy reduction in crime. For example, the number of burglaries has dropped nearly 35 percent over the decade. This could be attributed to the many citizen safety training opportunities and education classes the Sandy Springs Police Department hosts each year.”
