As you ride around Zachary, you will notice new business owners remodeling, renovating, and rehabilitating some of the cities’ older buildings.
The city has a well trained and equipped Police Department and Fire Department. Zachary is noted for its low crime and attributes this to the extra training and community policing of its police force.

Zachary joins ten cities in the State of Louisiana with this highest classification. In 2021, Zachary opened Station #83, which now serves as one of four for the City of Zachary.
