A new study of the best and worst cities in the U.S. in terms of quality of life for police officers turned up surprising results for one Georgia city, with another Georgia city right behind it.

The study ranks Warner Robins as the No. 10 worst city for quality of life for police officers, Gainesville ranks No. 11.

The percentage of people with a favorable view of the police has fallen 7% since 2017 and stands near the levels seen just after the Rodney King verdict.
