Georgia Death Row / Georgia Inmate Search

The death penalty is an option in the state of Georgia and can only be decided by a unanimous jury vote. The state began executing convicted offenders by hanging in 1735. They executed more than 500 people using this method until 1924 when the preferred method was changed to electrocution. Prior to the use of electrocution, the death penalty was carried out by hanging in the jurisdiction where the crime occurred.

The electric chair was located at Georgia State Prison at Milledgeville from 1924 to 1938 and at Georgia State Prison at Reidsville from 1938 to 1964. From 1972 until 1976, the death penalty was outlawed in Georgia. Electrocution was reinstituted in 1976 and used until 2001 when the method was legally changed to lethal injection.

Crime in Georgia / Georgia Inmate Search

A criminal act is anything that breaks the laws and can be legally punished, often punishment includes fines or time in jail. Violent crimes are the most concerning because those crimes endanger people’s welfare and lives. Violent crimes include things like murder, rape, and robbery. Georgia is the fifth leading state for most robberies and aggravated assaults.

Not all crimes involve the bodily harm of another person. Many crimes are considered property crimes and usually include things like vandalism, theft, and property damage. Property crimes are more common than violent crimes anywhere. In fact, in Georgia, the most common crime is stealing packages off of porches or by doorsteps.

In the United States, in 2021, 16.5 crimes were committed for every 1,000 people. In Georgia, there are 14 cities where the crime rate is more than twice the national average. That means in these specific cities, more than 33 crimes were committed per every 1,000 people. T
