    PEACHTREE CORNERS COUNCIL TO SWEAR IN NEW CITY MARSHALS

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
     
    PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA, Nov. 10, 2023 – During the City of Peachtree Corners’ Regular Council Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 14th at 7:00 p.m., Mayor Mike Mason will be swearing in the City’s three new Marshals to the City’s newly established Marshal’s Office.
     
    Mayor Mason will be swearing in:
     

    • Chief Marshal Edward Restrepo
    • Deputy Chief Marshal Johnnie L. Bing, Jr.
    • Captain Henry A. Mesa
     
    The City Marshal Program has been implemented as a non-emergency “force multiplier” for the City of Peachtree Corners and will serve as the liaison with the Gwinnett County Police Department (GCPD).  The GCPD will continue to serve as the first-line policing agency for the City of Peachtree Corners and will continue to lead all emergency response, dispatch, and 911 services.  In the event of any emergency, residents should always dial 911. 
     
    The City Marshal’s Office will focus on the specific needs of the City government as well as responding to the needs of the community, by concentrating on specific issues as they arise.  These needs may include focusing on problem crime areas, increasing presence patrols, and interfacing with the community, homeowners’ associations and local businesses. Due to their relationship with the Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners and its partners, the Marshals will get the opportunity to test and deploy new and emerging law enforcement technologies that are not readily available to conventional police departments.
     
    The Peachtree Corners City Marshals are POST Certified and are authorized to perform all the duties of any officer in the State of Georgia. The Marshal’s Office is trained to respond and intervene in any criminal activity and will call Gwinnett County Police when necessary.
     
    Residents, homeowners’ associations and local businesses may contact the Marshal’s Office directly to request extra patrols, crime prevention education, and participation in events or other community programs.
