Message from the Chief
On behalf of the men and women of the Cobb County Police Department, I wish to thank you for visiting our website. The Cobb County Police Department is a team of over 600 sworn officers and 150 civilian employees. Our Department is CALEA Accredited and State Certified.
Cobb County borders the City of Atlanta to the north and west and is home to 700,000 residents. We are home to Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Lockheed Martin, Six Flags Over Georgia and four Fortune 500 companies. Beginning in 2017, Cobb County will be home of the Atlanta Braves.
We place tremendous value on the relationships our officers have built in the communities they serve. The success of the Cobb County Police Department is due to both the strong commitment of our employees and the support they receive from the entire community. We believe these partnerships and the professionalism of our officers, and civilian staff members, contribute to the safe environment enjoyed by those who live, work, and visit our great county.
We are the third largest county in the state of Georgia. You will find a community of quiet subdivisions and apartment complexes located near excellent schools, shopping and churches. Recreational facilities are outstanding and Cobb County's location allows for a short drive to the North Georgia mountains or a few hours’ drive to the beach.
Please take a few minutes to learn more about Cobb County Police Department's divisions and services. You will find that our employees are dedicated, well-trained, and enthusiastic professionals who take pride in their work.
-Chief John R. Houser
