Keeping the peace in Alma

“Placing high again in home town contest was no accident as Alma citizens carried out more improvements. A new police car was added to the city’s law enforcement equipment. (File) 1954” Alma’s new police car was a Ford Mainline. It was manufactured from 1952 to 1956. Alma is in Bacon County in southeast Georgia, well below Macon and north of Waycross. The town is named for the wife of a traveling salesman who happened to pass through at just the right time.
