This community has seen two deaths caused by totally senseless violence in less than two weeks. In light of that, I have asked Chief Ellison and his Department to increase the level of patrolling, police presence and investigation in the areas where these crimes were committed. We will not allow this disrespect for human life to be representative of our City. All necessary resources of city government will be used to provide for the safety of all out citizens and the rigid guarantee of law and order in Swainsboro, Georgia.

Charles Schwabe

Mayor, City of Swainsboro
